# There is a small hole near the bottom of an open tank filled with a liquid. The speed of the water ejected does not depend on

A. area of the hole

B. density of the Liquid

C. height of the liquid from the hole

D. acceleration due to gravity

Answer :

The velocity of water exiting is given by . This does not depend on the cross-sectional area of the hole or the density of liquid. Thus, option (A) and (B) are wrong.

From the equation, the velocity depends on the height of the liquid and the acceleration due to gravity (g). So, option (C) and (D) are correct.
