I am trying to work out the amount of pressure that is present on a water tap that is supplied by a header tank. I know that many paramerts come into the equation, I just don't know what the equestion is. Please can you help. The header tank has a base of 0.7m X 0.5m and the water level comes up to 0.4m when full. The diameter of the pipe between the header tank and the tap that I want to know the pressure of is 15mm The header tank is 4.6m above the tap. I have seen postings answering similar, so I know that 9.8m/s/s (acceleration dur to gravity) is also a factor. The density of water is also used, but I can't find that out either. Please can you help. Thanks, Richard Thomas. firstname.lastname@example.org
