Physics--Pressure

a house at the bottom of a hill is fed by a full tank of water 5m deep and connected to the house by a pipe that is 110m long at an angle of 58 from the horizontal.

a) determine the water gauge pressure at the house
b) how high could the water shoot if it came vertically out of a broken pipe in front of the house?

  1. a) gage pressure = added pressure above atmospheric p = (water density) g H,
    where
    H = 5 m + 110 sin 58
    = water level elevation above house ground level

    b) same as the top level of the water in the tank
