Example 43 A water tank has the shape of an inverted right circular cone with its axis vertical and vertex lowermost. Its semi-vertical angle is tan–1 (0.5). Water is poured into it at a constant rate of 5 cubic meter per hour. Find the rate at which the level of the water is rising at the instant when the depth of water in the tank is 4 m.Water tank is in shape of cone Let r be the radius of cone, h be the height of cone, & 𝜶 be the semi−vertical angle Given Semi-vertical angle is tan^(−1)⁡(0.5) α=tan^(−1)⁡(0.5) tan α =(0.5) 𝑟/ℎ = 0.5 𝑟/ℎ = 1/2 𝒓 = 𝒉/𝟐 Also, Water is poured at a constant rate of 5 cubic meter per hour 𝒅𝑽/𝒅𝒕=𝟓 𝒎^𝟑/𝒉𝒓 Where V is volume of cone Now, 𝑉=1/3 𝜋𝑟^2 ℎ 𝑉=1/3 𝜋(𝒉/𝟐)^2 ℎ 𝑉=1/3 𝜋(〖h/4〗^2 )ℎ 𝑽=(𝝅𝒉^𝟑)/𝟏𝟐 Differentiate w.r.t. t 𝑑𝑉/𝑑𝑡=𝑑((𝜋ℎ^3)/12)/𝑑𝑡 𝑑𝑉/𝑑𝑡=𝜋/12 .
