Physics

A garden hose with a diameter of 0.65 has water flowing in it with a speed of 0.91 and a pressure of 1.2 atmospheres. At the end of the hose is a nozzle with a diameter of 0.29.
Find the speed of water in the nozzle?
Find the pressure in the nozzle.

  1. Your diameter and speed require dimensions. Numbers are not enough.

    Your question can be answered by using the continuity and Bernoulli equations.

    speed * area = constant

    P + (1/2)*(density)*(speed)^2 = constant
