Water is pumped from a stone basin up through a pipe 1 meter high. At that height, the water flows out through a tap and falls down through the air to the basin below, where the cycle begins again. What is the gravitational potential energy of 2.5 kilograms of water at the top of the pipe? How fast is the falling water moving by the time it reaches the basin?
