Fluid Dynamics and Bernoulli's Equation

The gauge pressure in a garden hose is 2.0 atmospheres. If the cross-sectional area of the hose is 4.0 cm^2 and the nozzle output area is 0.4 cm^2(cm^2= 10^-4m^2):
(a) How fast does the water leave the hose?
(b) If the hose is held parallel to the ground and is 1.0 m above the ground, how far out will it travel before it hits the ground?
