classical mechanics

A Venturi flow meter is used to measure the the flow velocity of a water main. The water main has a diameter of 40.0 cm, and the constriction has a diameter of 20.0 cm. The two vertical pipes are open at the top, and the difference in water level between them is 2.0 m. Find the velocity, vm (in m/s), and the volumetric flow rate, Q (in m3/s), of the water in the main.
