Water is leaking out from a cylinder at the rate of 0.31m^3 per minute. 10 minutes later, the water level decreases 0.25 meter, what is the value of the radius of the cylinder?

volume emptied per minute = 0.31

for 10 minutes = 3.1

volume of cylinder = 22/7 * r^2 * l

here l = 0.25

22/7 * r^2 * 0.25 = 3.1

solving the above equation we get

r = 2

Water leaking out at 0.31 cubic meter/min

10 mintues --> will have leaked 3.1 cubic meters

Volume of cylinder = pi * r^2 * h

3.1 = pi * r^2 * 0.25
pi*r^2 = 12.4
r = 1.9 (approximately 2)

Guys, this is an excellent question. I got this one on the real thing a couple weeks ago. Be sure to familiarize yourself with it.

Agree with ywildred's working.

Exact same question? It is a very good question though, I have having trouble finding L but know I understand. Reminds me of HS math questions. Is there are formula for these type of questions, I mean we have rate of change and time.
