Water is being poured into a cylindrical vase at a rate of 15 millilitres per second. If the radius of the vase is 10 cm, find the rate with which the height of water in the vase is rising. ?
The height of water in the vase is rising at 0.0478cm/second
Lets first find the volume of the vase at 1cm.
So, the vase hold 100
As the water is flowing in at 15ml/second, we can now determine how long it takes the water to fill 1cm (height wise) of the vase and therefore the rate at which it rises.
