Brouwer, W.; Paranjape, B. V.
Physics Education, v7 n4 p300-04 Jan-Mar 1991
The forward force of water on a hose is calculated using only the pressure gradient, the radius and length of the hose. The misconception about recoil on the nozzle is discussed. Dissipation energy and the consequent heat generation in a fluid flow are also described. (KR)
