Water is flowing through a pipe (area 4.0 cm2) that connects to a faucet adjusted to have an opening of 0.57 cm2. If the water is flowing at a speed of 5.3 m/s in the pipe, how long does it take for water from the faucet to fill a bucket of volume 0.11 m3?

  • Physics -

    Q = volume flow rate
    = (pipe area) * 5.3 m/s
    = 2.12*10^-3 m^3/s

    Let time required = T
    Q*T = 0.11 m^3
    T = 52 s
