answer is B : 4V

Explanation: V=kh^2
when h=2, then V=k2^2=4k, therefore k=V/4.
when h=4, then speed of leak=kh^2=(V/4)x4^4=V/4 x 16=4V.

V'=2^2 k

let new speed be s

s= k 4^2

so, s=4V'

V=k *2^2 = 4k
V'= k * 4^2 = 16k
V' = 4V . V= V'/4
Speed of leak in terms of V ' is V'/4. Answer choice D.

When h=2: V' = k*2^2 = 4k
When h = 4, V = k*4^2 = 16k
=> V = 4V'
Hence B.

What to find? Speed of leak when height is 4.

Given
1. Formula for speed V=Kh^2
2. Speed= V at height 2

From the given information calculate the value of constant K by using given information.

V=K*2^2

Therefore K= V/4

Use the value of constant K to find out speed at height 4.

Speed of leak when the height of the oil remaining 4 = Kh^2 =V/4*4^4 =4V.

QUESTION #4:

When the oil from a circular cylinder leaked, the formula for the speed of the leak is V = kh^2, where h was the height of the remaining oil and k was constant. If the height of the cylinder is 2, the speed of the leak is V’, When the height of the oil remaining is 4, what was the speed of the leak, in terms of V’?

A. 2V’
B. 4V’
C. V’/2
D. V’/4
E. V’


Check conditions below:

MATH REVOLUTION OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

This type of question appears within a score range of 45 to 48. It is important to first find the value of a constant like this speed question. According to the question, when the height of the cylinder is 2, the speed of the leak is V’. Therefore, the first step would be: V’=k(2)^2=k4, k=V’/4. Because the question asks for the speed of the leak when the height is 4, the calculation would be: V=k(4)^2=(V’/4)(16)=V’/4. So, B is the correct answer.
