A water tank is a container for storing water.
Water tanks are used to provide storage of water for use in many applications, drinking water, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming, both for plants and livestock, chemical manufacturing, food preparation as well as many other uses. Water tank parameters include the general design of the tank, and choice of construction materials, linings. Various materials are used for making a water tank: plastics (polyethylene, polypropylene), fiberglass, concrete, stone, steel (welded or bolted, carbon, or stainless). Earthen pots, such as matki used in South Asia, can also be used for water storage. Water tanks are an efficient way to help developing countries to store clean water.

A typical UK domestic hot water tank holds c. 200 litres of water. Hitherto the common method of heating it to say 60C has been by means of an internal coil of copper pipe through which is pumped hot water from a gas boiler at ~ 70C. Heat transfer on the outside of the coil is by natural...
I draw this diagram:
The formula for hydrostatic pressure is: ##P=\rho g h## so I just plug everything

= 1050W
Am i missing something or could I calculate U with the info given?

Hi,
If it is assumed the temperature of a shower is to be 43°C and the electric shower consumes 50 litres of water at that temperature, then the Energy required for an electric shower would be:

QElectric Shower = 6.89945 kJ or...
Based on my understanding,
Top Tank Refilling
