Hello!

I hope you are all doing well! I've been always intrigued by fluid mechanics and decided to try out a quick experiment with my water faucet. After using some equations I found online [1] [2], I plugged a hose to the faucet and let the water run. I filled a 1 quart bowl and recorded the time it took to fill it. Without closing the valve, the experiment was repeated several times.

After comparing the experimental to theoretical results, there was a huuuge discrepancy.

Could you please help me see where the problem is? I feel like this should be a very simple problem...
