Question
please sir, solve this:water flows from a tap into a cylindrical container at the rate 5pie cm^3 per second.if the radius of the container is 3cm,calculate the level of water in the container at the end of 9seconds.

You don't need calculus for this.

After 9 seconds , the volume will be 45π .

The water will be a cylinder with radius 3 and height h.

The volume of a cylinder with radius r and height h is πr²h

So, after 9 seconds,  45π = π9h , and h = 5 . The water level will be at 5 cm
