## Abstract

In this paper, the problem of steady two-dimensional flow emerging from a slot of a funnel is considered. The fluid is assumed to be incompressible and inviscid and the flow is irrotational. The problem is reformulated using conformal mappings and the resulting problem is then solved by using the series truncation method. We computed solutions for various values of the Weber numbers. The contraction coefficient for different forms of the funnel has been found. The shape of the free surface of the jet has been determined and presented.
