A can of Coca‐Cola has a small pinhole leak in it. The Coke sprays vertically

into the air at a height of 0.5 m. What is the pressure inside the can?

ρ = 1.11 g/mL

2. Relevant equations

Bernoulli: p1/ρ + (v1^2)/2 +g*z1 = p2/ρ + (v2^2)/2 +g*z2

3. The attempt at a solution

I've assumed:

z1=0, z2= 0.5

p2= atmospheric = 0 (gage)

v2=0

This simplifies bernoulli's to p1 = (g*z2-(v1^2)/2)/ρ

However v1 is still unknown and i have no way to solve for it
