Determine the pressure of the water in pipe A shown below if the gage pressure of the air in the tank is 2 psi. [Answer in units of psf]

Step 1

Take the specific weight of water (*γ _{w}*) as 62.4 lb/ft

Take the pressure of the water in pipe *A* as *p _{A}.*

The height difference h_{1} is 1 ft.

The height difference h_{2} is 4 ft.

The height difference h_{3} is 2 ft.

Step 2

Calculate the pressure of the water in pipe *A*.
