# A manometer containing mercury is connected to two points A and B 15 m apart, on an inclined pipeline conveying water as shown.?

##
The pipeline is straight and slopes at an angle of 15 o with the horizontal. The manometer gives a reading of 150 mm. Calculate the pressure difference between the two points A and B. (Specific weight of water = 9.81 kN and S.G of Hg= 13.6)
