A cylindrical water tank of diameter 1.4 m and height 2.1 m is being fed by a pipe of diameter 3.5 cm through which water flows at the rate of 2 metre per second. In how much time the tank will be filled? Looking to do well in your science exam ? Learn from an expert tutor. Book a free class!

We have,

Diameter of cylindrical tank = 1.4 m

Radius of tank = d/2 = 1.4/2 = 0.7m Height of tank = 2.1 m

Diameter of pipe flowing water in tank = 3.5 cm

Radius of pipe = d/2 = 3.5/2 cm

Rate of flow of water = 2 m/s

Time taken to fill the tank = volume of tank / volume of pipe × rate of flow

= πr-2h / (πr-2 × 2)

= (π × 0.7 × 0.7 × 2.1) / (π × 3.5/2 × 3.5/2 × 2)

= 1.029 / 6.125

= 0.168

= 1680 seconds

= 128 minutes.

∴ Time taken to fill the tank is 128minutes.
