I have no idea how to solve this problem I know bernoulli's equaiton and the equation of continuity, but I don't know how to apply them to this problem...If someone could get me started I would be very appreciative. My final exam is monday and I fear this problem is going to be on the exam... thanks for the help...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Through a pipe of diameter 15.0 cm, water is pumped from the Colorado River up to Grand Conyon Village, on the rim of the canyon. The river is at 564m elevation and the village is at 2096 m... (a)at what minimum pressure must the water be pumped to arrive at the village? (b)If 4500 cubic meters are pumped per day, what is the speed of the water in the pipe? (c) What additional pressure is necessary to deliver this flow?
