## Homework Statement

A large tank of water has a hose conected to. The tank (a cylinder) is 4.0 m in height and the tank is sealed at the top and has compressed air between the water surface and the top. When the water height h has the value 3.50m, the absolute pressure p of the compressed air is 4.20*10^5Pa. Assume that the air above the water expands at constant temp. and take the atmospheric pressure to be 1.00*10^5Pa. What is the speed at which the water flows out of the hose at h = 3.0m and h = 2.0m? at what value h does the water stop flowing?

## Homework Equations

I'm pretty sure this involves the ideal gas equation of state PV = nrT and maybe the fact that the volume increase or decrease dV with respect to time is equal to the height increase or decrease dh with respect to time....

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have tried quite a few things but to be honest im stumped at how to approach this problem so please help...i strongly appreciate it...
