Question: the commercial steel pipeline depicted in the figure is 200m...

Question details
The commercial steel pipeline depicted in the figure is 200m long and has a diameter of 0.45m. Determine the height of the water tower (h) if the flow rate is 0.85m^3/s. Assume that minor losses are negligible and a water temperature is 4 degrees Celsius.
Answer should be 7.85m
