A tap is opened to fill a bucket, and water flows from the tank through a pipe. Now, as shown in the diagram, consider two points A and B on the vertical part of the pipe which has a uniform cross section.

If the pipe is completely filled with water and the water flows steadily, then at which point is the speed of the water flow greater?

The speed flow at A and B is the same.

At B velocity will begreater

If the flow rate is constant, then,
Flow rate equals speed times cross section,
the cross section at both points is the same, then
speed is the same at A and B
