I want to calculate the difference in temp between the bottom & top of a hot water tank,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Presumably the height of the tank, the diameter, the actual temp and time would be the variables. I will assume no heat loss. The heat input would be at the base of the tank.
