    Having some trouble with an Issac Physics problem!
    https://isaacphysics.org/questions/c...rough_tube_num I keep getting 2.4 ms^-1 (The answer is supposed to be 1.9 ms^-1) By equating mgh = 1/2mv^2 I get to v^2 = 2gh But I get h as (2L + x -1) (The -1 comes from me finding the original length of CD as 1.)

    Giving me v^2 = 2g(2L + x -1) which gives me 2.4 ms^-1...Any help?

    It might be useful to ask yourself this:
    what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
