As Given V = kh^2
1. h=2 , V can be calculated as
V = Kh^2 V' =4k
2. h=4 ,
V =16k = 4(4k)= 4V'
Hence answer B !

The answer is B. We know speed of the leak is V=4kh^2. (k is constant and h is height of oil remaining). Given  when height of the cylinder is 2 speed of leak is V'. Assuming height of oil in the cylinder is 2 = height of oil remaining, V' =K*2^2. or K=V'/4 Find V when height of oil remaining is 4. V=(V'/4)*4^2 = V'*4 or option B.

v' = 4k v at h=4 is 16k, which is equal to 4v'

For a cylinder of height 2, that just starts leaking, h = 2. (Appears to be a typo in the question. 2 should be height of remaining oil) \(V` = 2^2k V` = 4k\) For a cylinder with remaining oil 4, h=4 \(V = 4^2k = 16k\) Thus, \(V` = 4V\) Answer B

V=Kh^2 at h=2; V'=K(2)^2=4K => K=V'/4 .... (I) at h=4; V"=K(4)^2=16K .... (II) substituting .. (I) into (II) , we have V" = 16 (V'/4) = 4V' You know the importance of Kudos, be generous.

\(V = kh^2 = k4^2 = 16k\) \(V' = kh^2 = k2^2 = 4k\) V is four times bigger than V' so \(V=4V'\) Answer B

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’?
ok, so we are given the formula: V=kh^2 when h=2, then the speed of leak is V' V' = k*2^2 or 4k
when the height is 4, then V =k*4^2 or 16k
to express this in V', divide 16k by 4k and get 4. V when the height is 4 will be 4 times when the height is 2. in short: 4V'.

Answer: (B). Solution: V'= k* 2^2 or V' = k* 4 or k= V'/4; then v" (new speed)= k* 4^2 or v"= 16 *k or v"= 16 * (v'/4)=4v'

V = kh^2, where h was the height of the remaining oil and k was constant.
Height of the cylinder is 2 > Speed of the leak is V' = 4k Height of the oil remaining is 4 > Speed of the leak = 16k = 4*4k = 4V'

Answer can be B
The question is framed poorly. It uses the height of the cylinder to give V'. But it asks for the amount of oil remaining using height of the oil left. So , is the height of the cylinder greater than the height of oil ? If yes, then this is a ridiculously easy question. If not, it is framed incorrectly

B? Given, V=kh^2 When height of the oil remaining is 4, V=k4^2=16k If height of the cylinder=2 Speed V'=k2^2=4k (considering it is fully filled) Hence V=4V' Something smells fishy and it ain't fish!

when h = 2
V` = k * 2^2 => v#=4k => k = v#/4
when h =4
\(=> k * 4 * 4 => v = \frac{v}{4}*4 * 4 = 4 v\)

v=K(2x2)=4K
If h=4, new speed will be K(4x4)=16K=4V.

Formula for the speed of leak is v = k*h^2. Let's write the question in terms of this formula: "If the height of the cylinder is 2, the speed of the leak is V’" in terms for above formula can be stated as:v' = k*2^2 (v' is the velocity when the hight is 2 ) v' = 4k k = v'/4 "When the height of the oil remaining is 4, what was the speed of the leak" in terms of formula can be stated as:v = k*4^2 v = 16k v = 16*(v'/4) v = 4v' (this is the velocity of leak in terms of v', when hight of remaining oil is 4) Option (B) is correct.

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’
When h=2 v=V'
So V' = k.4 Hence k = V'/4
Now when h=4
v=(V'/4).4^2 v=V'.16/4 v=4V'
Ans : B

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’
Soln: \(V = k * h^2\). Given, when \(h = 2, V = V'\). So, \(V' = k * 2^2 = 4k.\) .....\((i)\)
Now, we need to find speed in terms of \(V'\), when \(h = 4.\)
We know speed \(V = k*h^2 = k * 4^2 = 16*k = 4*4k = 4*V' = 4V'.\) (using eqn\((i)\))
Answer: B.
