# Sprinkler Power

A lawn sprinkler sprays water in a parabolic arc. The maximum height of the arc above ground is $$(h = 2m)$$, and the stream lands on the ground a distance $$(d = 10m)$$ away from the sprinkler.

If the mass flow rate of water through the sprinkler is $$(\frac{dm}{dt} = 10 kg /minute)$$, determine the absolute minimum power (in Watts) required to operate the sprinkler.

Details and Assumptions:

The gravitational acceleration is $$(g = 9.8 \frac{m}{s^{2}} )$$
Neglect losses, air resistance, movement of sprinkler parts, etc.
