Two children, Ferdinand and Isabella, are playing with a water hose on a sunny summer day.

Two children, Ferdinand and Isabella, are playing with a water hose on a sunny summer day. Isabella is holding the hose in her hand 1.0 meters above the ground and is trying to sprayFerdinand, who is standing 10.0 meters away.

Part A

Will Isabella be able to spray Ferdinand if the water is flowing out of the hose at a constant speed v0 of 3.5 meters per second? Assume that the hose is pointed parallel to the ground and take the magnitude of the acceleration g due to gravity to be 9.81 meters per second, per second.

  • Yes
  • No

Part B

To increase the range of the water, Isabella places her thumb on the hose hole and partially covers it. Assuming that the flow remains steady, what fraction f of the cross-sectional area of the hose hole does she have to cover to be able to spray her friend?

Assume that the cross-section of the hose opening is circular with a radius of 1.5 centimeters.

Express your answer as a percentage to the nearest integer.
