**Steve**, Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 5:53pmwhen the water is at depth x, the radius of the surface of the water is 5/12 (12-x)

so, the volume of the air space is 1/3 pi r^2 h

= 1/3 pi (5/12 (12-x))^2 (12-x)

= 25pi/432 (12-x)^3

the volume of water is thus the tank volume less the air space:

v = pi/3 * 25^2 * 12 - 25pi/432 (12-x)^3

= 100 pi - 25pi/432 (12-x)^3

dv/dt = 25/144 pi (12-x)^2 dx/dt

3 = 25/144pi * 25 dx/dt

dx/dt = 432/(625pi) = 0.22 ft/min
