This Week's Puzzler...

Imagine that you owned a water tank located on a hill behind your house. The water tank is 300 feet from the house, on an uphill slope that averages 30° from the horizontal. If you filled the tank with water, and ran a pipe from the tank to your house, what water pressure (in pounds per square inch) would you expect to see (at your house)? Enter your answer on the poll at right.
