Q = incoming flow rate = .1 m^3/min dh/ dt = Q A where A = surface area = length * width at 20 cm depth which depth is (1/2) height width = 30 + 1/2(70-30) = 30+20 = 50 cm = .5 m wide water surface so A = 5 * .50 =2.5 m^3 so finally dh/dt = .1 * 2.5 = .25 m/min = 25 cm/min

I do not think amplitude means much for a tangent function which goes to infinity twice a period so I would not say 3 but maybe undefined. when the x term increases to 2 pi from 0 we have gone a period so (2/3) x = 2 pi x = 3 pi when we have gone a period period = 3 pi
