## Homework Statement

Water is flowing along a pipe. Points B and C in the pipe are at the same height but point A is at a higher elevation.The pipe has the same cross-sectional area at points A and B but is wider at point C. Rank in order from largest to smallest, the pressures at the three points A, B, C. Briefly explain your reasoning.

## Homework Equations

Bernoulli''s equation?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Largest to smallest in order: A, B, C

Pressure highest at A because A is uphill, then B because it has a smaller cross sectional area than C, and then C because greatest cross sectional area.

But I'm not sure if pressure is higher at C because it's pushing fluid uphill?
