A tank full of water has a height H = 12:5 m. A small hole is drilled into its side h = 2:5 m above the ground. What is the horizontal distance from the tank to the point where the water spout owing from the hole reaches the ground?and at what height must the hole be drilled in order to
maximize this distance?
