Determine the maximum height, Chemistry

Cavitation occurs when the pressure in localized regions reaches the vapor pressure. This can cause actually cause structural damage if vapor bubbles form and burst. Consider a system where water at 60o F is siphoned from a large tank through a constant diameter hose. The tank is open to the atmosphere and 15 ft high. Determine the maximum height of the hill over which the water can be siphoned without cavitation occurring. The end of the siphon is 5 ft below the bottom of the tank. Hint: it is a lot easierto use gauge pressure for this problem.
