Question 21 (OR 1st question) Water is flowing at the rate of 15 km per hour through a pipe of diameter 14cm into a rectangular tank which is 50 m long and 44 m wide. Find the time in which the level of water in the tank will rise by 21 cm. Let length of pipe for filling whole tank be h m. So, Volume of pipe = Volume of tank Volume of pipe Pipe is in form of cylinder where Let Height = h m Diameter = 14 cm So, radius = ๐ท๐‘–๐‘Ž๐‘š๐‘’๐‘ก๐‘’๐‘Ÿ/2 = 14/2 = 7 cm = 7/100 m Volume of pipe = Volume of cylinder = ๐œ‹r2h = ๐œ‹(7/100)^2 h = 22/7 ร— 7/100 ร— 7/100 ร— h = (22 ร— 7)/10000h Volume of tank Tank is in form cuboid where Length = l = 50 m Breadth = b = 44 m Height = h = 21 cm = 21/100 m Volume of tank = lbh = 50 ร— 44 ร— 21/100 = (44\ ร— 21)/2 = 22 ร— 21 Now, Volume of pipe = Volume of tank (22 ร— 7)/10000h = 22 ร— 21 h = (22 ร— 21 ร— 10000)/(22 ร— 7) h = 30,000 m h = 30 km Now, Water in pipe flows at rate 15 km/hr So, 15 km travels in pipe in = 1 hour 1 km travels in pipe in = 1/15 hour 30 km travels in pipe in = 30/15 hour = 2 hours So, in 2 hours, the tank will be filled
