Question
Water emerges straight down from a faucet with a 1.80-cm diameter at a speed of 0.500 m/s. (Because of the construction of the faucet, there is no variation in speed across the stream.) (a) What is the flow rate in $\textrm{cm}^3\textrm{/s}$? (b) What is the diameter of the stream 0.200 m below the faucet? Neglect any effects due to surface tension.
1. $127 \textrm{ cm}^3\textrm{/s}$
2. $0.890 \textrm{ cm}$
