Could you guys please show me how to do this? Not just the answer I want to be able to grasp the concept. Thanks

2. Relevant equations

I'd Assume

1/2pv^2 + pgy = 1/2 pv^2 + pgy

Has something to do with it, but I don't really know where to start.

3. The attempt at a solution

Honestly I have no idea where to start. How does the info given relate to anything?

From the above equation I can get

1/2(1000)(2e-4)^2 + 1000 *9.8*.1?= 1/2 1000 (2e-4)^2? + 1000 *9.8* .25?

But this doesnt use a lot of the info. Any help would be appreciated.
