I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this (because it isn't homework), but it could easily be a homework question.

This wiki page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siphon#Explanation_using_Bernoulli.27s_equation", shows how to apply Bernoulli's equation to a siphon where both the surface of the water and the exit point of the siphon (point "c" in the diagram) are at the same pressure.

My question is this: how do you use the equation if the pressure at the surface of the water is different than the pressure at point c?

Thanks,

Brent
