Pressure in hose

  1. May 12, 2006 #1
    Am I substituting other variables into P + (1/2)pv^2 + pgh in this problem?

    That is the correct equation. All you have to do is compare between a point inside the hose (energy density in hose = P_in ) and the point at the top of the vertical spray (energy density at top = pgh + Po).
