Question details

Problern from Winter 2017 issue of The Bent of Tau Beta Pi·The end of my sink facet bends at a right angle to the horizontal so that the opening. which has an inside diameter of 2.0em, points vertically down. The water system has a pressure regulator that, with the faucet fully open, produces a steady downward stream with a circular cross section at a rate of 8.328 L/min. I notice that the stream tapers down to a diameter of 0.9 cm at the point at which it reaches the drain. To the nearest millimeter, how far is the drain from the faucet opening? Use a value of 9.807 m/s2 for the standard acceleration due to gravity.-Adapted from The Chicken from Minsk by Yuri Chernyak and Robert Rose.
