The flow vlocity through the hole is

V = sqrt (2 g H),

where H is the height of the water level above the hole. Measured to the cetner of the hole that would have a maximum value of 41.5 inches.

The volume flow rate through the hole

Q = A V,

where A is the area of the hole. Make sure you sure consistent units when using the equations. I suggest using H in feet, g = 32.2 ft/s^2, V in ft/s and Q in ft^3/s. Then convert cubic feet to gallons.

all that my teacher gave me was V=(2gh)^1/2
