Question

A conical paper cup 3 inches across the top and 4 inches deep is full of water. The cup springs a leak at the bottom and loses water at the rate of 2 cubic inches per minute. How fast is the water level dropping at the instant when the water is exactly 3.5 inches deep?

Answer #1

A paper cup in the shape of a cone with height 5 cm and radius 3
cm with the point of the cone at the bottom. A small leak develops
in the cup causing water to leak out at a rate of 0.1
cm3/s. Find the rate at which the height of the water in
the cup changes when the depth of the water is 2 cm. Recall that
the volume of a cone is v=1/3(pi)(r2)h

A conical tank is 14m high and its diameter across the top is
10m. Water is being drained from the tank at the rate of
7m3/min. Determine the rate at which the water level is
decreasing when the height is 5m. [ANSWER: 0.7m/min]
