A water tower sits on top of a hill and supplies water to citizens below. The difference in pressure between the water tower and the Dailey's house is 1.1x10^5 Pa, while the difference in pressure between the tower and the Stearns' house is 3.2x10^5 Pa. a)which house sits at a higher elevation? b)what is the difference in elevation between the twoo houses?

  1. The lower house gets the higher pressure.

    difference in pressure between 2 houses = (3.2-1.1)*10^5 Pascals or Newtons/meter^2

    difference in pressure = rho g * difference in height
