    Let piezometric heads be H1 and H2 and separation between them be L then hydraulic gradient(∆H/L) = (H1-H2) /L So putting values, H1= 48.6m, H2= 47.5m, L=121m So hydraulic gradient= (48.6–47.5)/121= 0.009 Answer is = 0.009(upto three decimal place).

    dh=48.6-47.5= 1.1 and l = 121 ,so hydraulic gradient= 1.1/121= 0.009
