    Water is pumped through a pipe to a tank at the top of a building. The pressure of the water at ground level is 2.2* 10^5 Pa and at the tank, the pressure is atmospheric. If the diameter of the pipe is the same throughout, find the height at which the tank is located. Atmospheric pressure may be assumed as 1.0 * 10^5 Pa and G as 10m/s^2

    a. 24m
    b. 12m
    c. 20m
    d. 16m
