    You are expected to find it from the depth of the tank.

    i am going to use this equation to solve this question , where z = 10 m what is the pressure at ENTRANCE ? it's not given
    p/s : hf = 0

    It's unclear where the two points on your streamline are.pipe entry and exit? Or free surface and pipe exit?
    If z=0 is along the pipe axis then z=10 is the water surface, and the pressure there is equal to the exit pressure so both can be set to zero.
