This is part of the classroom curriculum I developed for use with my high school physics students.
The instructor guides students through this activity via classroom discussion. The activity is a springboard for that discussion. This is not intended as a homework or independent activity.
THE TORRICELLI FOUNTAIN
Leaky buckets. Fluids lessons and the College Board can't seem to get enough of them. So we painstakingly develop Torricelli's Law here. The Bernoulli Equation and the kinematics of projectile motion are required on this journey.
