The total potential energy of these two particles is the same as having two particles at 50m.

The only value that changes in the calculation is h (the height of the particle above the ground).

So for every pair of particles, if you add up the h value and the total equals the height of the resevoir, it is the equivalent of having two particles at half the height of the resevoir (which is the average height of all the particles within it).

So if you take your resevoir, you have two choices. You can either calculate the value of PE for each particle at each seperate height
