Homework Help: Fluids in motion (Bernoulli's equation)

  1. Feb 10, 2008 #1
    1. The time required to fill a bucket with water from a certain garden hose is 30.0 s. If you cover part of the hose's nozzle with your thumb so that the speed of the water leaving the nozzle doubles, how long does it take to fill the bucket?

    2. Relevant equations: None required. I hope. Just in case: A1v1 = A2v2

    3. I believe that it would take the same amount of time to fill the bucket with water with your thumb on the nozzle than it would without your thumb on the nozzle... But I'm not sure...
