#### Question

A cylindrical vessel of radius 0.5 m is filled with oil at the rate of 0.25 π m^{3}/minute. The rate at which the surface of the oil is rising, is

(a) 1 m/minute

(b) 2 m/minute

(c) 5 m/minute

(d) 1.25 m/minute

#### Solution

(a) 1 m/minute

\[\text { Letrbe the radius,hbe the height andVbe the volume of the cylindrical vessel at any timet.Then, }\]

\[V = \pi r^2 h\]

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

\[ \Rightarrow \frac{dh}{dt} = \frac{1}{\pi r^2}\frac{dV}{dt}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \frac{dh}{dt} = \frac{0 . 25\pi}{\pi \left( 0 . 5 \right)^2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \frac{dh}{dt} = \frac{0 . 25}{0 . 25}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \frac{dh}{dt} = 1 m/\min\]

Is there an error in this question or solution?
