  16. 16. Problem 51: A fountain jet discharges water from ground level at an inclination of 45º to the ground. The jet travels a horizontal distance of 7.5m from the point of discharge and falls on the ground. Trace the path of the jet. Name the curve. As the jet will be a projectile so its path will be parabolic. The angle of jet with the ground is the angle of tangent on the curve at the point of discharge. First we will consider a scale to accommodate 7.5 m on the ground. That can be done by considering 1cm= 0.5 m. 5 O 4 1’ 3 2’ 2 3’ 1 A 4’ 45º 45º 7.5m 5’ B
