Water flows steadily from an open tank. The elevation of point 1 is 10.0 m, and the elevation of points 2 and 3 is 2.00 m. The cross-sectional area at point 2 is .048 m^2; at point 3 it is .016 m^2. The area of the tank is very large compared with the cross-sectional area of the pipe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I already got part A which tells us that the discharge rate is .2 m^3/s

Part B asks What is the gauge pressure at point 2?

I'm familiar with Bernoulli's equation and I thought I knew how to do the problem, but some how I got it wrong enough times to bring me down to one guess, so I want to be sure about what I'm doing.
