you cannot increase the pressure from a gravity tank by changing the pipe size, only the volume of water that will flow in a given period of time. The only way to increase the pressure is to increase the difference between the elevation of the tank and the elevation of the spigot. Many people will confuse an increase in water volume with an increase in water pressure, because, in both cases, more water will flow in a given period of time. ...more

increasing the pipe size can reduce elevation loss due to friction which can translate in lay mans terms as an "increase in pressure"

Why are small liquid drops spherical in shape?

Air pressure to resolve to outside of the shape formation and the normal force of molecules that have a particular density to there natural structure. The shape of the sphere is a result of even pressure in three dimensions around the center of mass and the counter action of the liquids atoms to have a particular density having reached normalcy in pressure. PS this works best in zero gravity as some liquid sizes will tend to form the tear drop shape, although the principal is nearly perfected in application of making ball bearings in gravity. _ Randolph M Cook Seattle, WA

How does the gravity on a planet vary with their mass?

Gravity on a planet varies because it depends upon mass and distance. Mass is proportional to gravity is and every planet have different sizes and masses.F = G(mass1*mass2)/D squared.(G is the gravitational constant, which has the same value throughout our universe.)
