Question

A cylindrical tank of radius 10 m is being filled with wheat at the rate of 314 cubic metre per hour. Then the depth of the wheat is increasing at the rate of

• 1 m/hr

•  0.1 m/hr

• 1.1 m/hr

•  0.5 m/hr

Solution

1 m/hr

$\text { Let r, hand V be the radius, height and volume of the cylinder at any time t. Then },$

$V = \pi r^2 h$

$\Rightarrow \frac{dV}{dt} = \pi r^2 \frac{dh}{dt}$

$\Rightarrow 314 = 3 . 14 \times \left( 10 \right)^2 \frac{dh}{dt}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{dh}{dt} = \frac{314}{314}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{dh}{dt} = 1 m/hr$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
