							When water flows down a vertical pipe, its flow is confined to a fixed channel. As it flows in the pipe, the mass flux remains the same. There is no change in the speed of the water flow as it flows through a pipe which has a uniform cross-sectional area. Therefore, water flows in a continuous stream down a vertical pipe.
When water experiences free fall, they move down due to the gravity of the Earth. It can be assumed that they flow through an unconfined channel. Each amount of water falls in its own way due to the gravity of the Earth. Thus, the flow of water is split into drops.
