A cylindrical water tank of diameter 1.4m and height 2.1m is being feed by a pipe of diameter 3.5cm through which water follows at the rate of 2m/per second . In how much time the tank will be filled ???

volume of tank

= π(.7^2)(2.1) = 1.029π m^3

radius of pipe = .0175 m

volume of water per second going through pipe

= π(.0175^2)(2) = .006125 m^3 /sec

time = 1.029π/.006125π sec = 1680 sec

= 28 minutes

how did the radius become 0.0175? 3.5 is the diameter so 3.5/2=1.75

pls correct.iam confused with this qyestion
