The Bucket (Posted on 2006-09-28) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Consider a bucket of water with two holes of equal area through which water is discharged. The water can flow out through hole ( B ), at the bottom, or through the down-spout, which begins at the top ( T ) and has its opening the same distance below the water level as the center of hole ( B).

Ignoring any friction effects, out of which opening will the water flow faster, and why?
