**Working out a value for H!?**

Hi there!

I'm a new student to physics and I'm still learning a lot about it.

Our teacher recently gave a question and I'm not sure how to work out the answer, can anyone help me?

So here it goes:

Here's a waterfall (See pic), the water at the bottom of the waterfall is 1C hotter than the water at the top of the waterfall.

How would I work out a value for h?

Please see picture below for diagram

Any help much appreciated!

Here is my attempt at solving the problem:

E = MC (delta) theta

= (Mass of water) (4200) ( theta + 1)--------------------------------------------

Potential energy = mgh

= M(9.8)(h)

--> 9.8mh = 4200 (mass)( theta + 1)

--> 9.8h = 4200( theta + 1)
