If my water reservoir for my house is high on a hill I can calculate the pressure at the house if I know the height of the reservoir. If I cut a hole at the base of the hill and let the water spray directly up, will it always rise to the height of the reservoir? I mean, you can use the conservation of energy but I just noticed the equation worked both ways with the same values...
