**Reiny**, Friday, October 28, 2011 at 9:20amI visualize two trapezoids as the side walls and rectangles as the end walls.

Volume = area of side wall x width

= 12 ((1.1 + 2.1)/2) ( 4) = 76.8 m^3

= 76.8(1000) L

= 76800 L

200 ml/sec = .2 L/sec

so time taken = 76800/.2 seconds

= 384000 seconds

= 6400 minutes

= 106.6667 hours or 4.44444.. days

= 4 days, 10 hours , 40 minutes

I will let you compute the time he turns off the tap
