Hi again,

Everything is kept the same other the length of pipe in this setup. The water enters from the left and exit on the right end. In Fig. 1 the length of pipe is 1 km and in Fig. 2 it is 2 km. Do you think that the length of pipe would affect the height of water column in Tower 1, Tower 2 and Tower 3 in Fig. 2?

Moreover, in my book the Bernoulli's equation is given as P1 + ½ ρv₁^2 + ρgh₁ = P2 + ½ ρv₂^2 + ρgh₂ where P1 and P2 are pressure. If h₁ and h₂ are the same then the factors ρgh can be neglected. In the view of this equation, I don't see why the height of p1 and p3 in this picture should differ. Could you please guide me? Thanks.
