The velocity v and maximum height h of water being pumped into the air are related by the equation v = square root(2gh) where g is the acceleration due to gravity (32 feet/second squared).


How do I find an equation that will give me the maximum height of water as a function of its velocity?!?!

Thank you so much!!

Square both sides to get v2 = 2gh


Divide both sides by 2g to get h = v2/(2g). This is your maximum height.
