**1. Homework Statement**

Two vertical tanks have their vertices connected by a short horizontal pipe. One tank initially full of water has an altitude of 1.8 meters and a diameter of base 2.2 meters. The other tank initially empty has an altitude 2.7 meters and a diameter of a base 2.4 meters. If the water is allowed to flow through the connecting pipe, find the level to which the water will ultimately rise in the empty tank.

**2. Homework Equations**

V=1/3(π/4)d

^{2}h

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I know for sure that the water that would go into the other tank would be one half of the volume of the full tank so

V=1/3(π/4)d

^{2}h

V=1/3(π/4)2.2

^{2}*1.8

V=2.281m

^{3}divided by two = 1.14m

^{3}of water would go to the empty tank.

Please enlighten me on how could i possibly find the height of the other tank, i dont even know what the height of the full tank would be after the discharge so any help would be well appreciated.
