## Homework Statement

13. Water falls at the rate of 271 g/s from a height of 56.2 m into a 776g bucket on a scale (without splashing). If the bucket is originally empty, what does the scale read after 3.14 s?

Answer: 2.50e+01 N

## Homework Equations

Density, estimate 1kg/m^3

F = ma (a = gravity)

1kg = 1L

## The Attempt at a Solution

In 3 seconds, .271*3 = .851 L dropped->.851 KG

Add weight of bucket, .851+.776 = 1.63 kg

F =ma

= 15.9 N
