**Steve**, Monday, November 21, 2011 at 9:28amWhen the water is x cm deep, and the surface is a circle of radius r

r/x = 4/16

r = x/4

v = pi/3 r^2 x = pi/3 x^2/16 x = pi/48 x^3

Now, what is x when half the liquid is gone?

pi/3 r^2 x = pi/3 * 16 * 16 / 2

x^3/4 = 128

x^3 = 2^11 = 2^9 * 4

x = 8 cbrt(4)

dv/dt = pi/16 x^2 dx/dt

4 = pi/16 * 64 cbrt(16) dx/dt

dx/dt = 64/pi / (128cbrt(2)) = .126 cm/s

Better check the details...
