water is flowing at the rate of 15km/hr through a pipe of diameter 14cm in to a cuboidal pond which is 50cm long and 44m wide. in what time will the level of water in the pond rise by 21cm?

Let the level of water in the pond rises by 21 cm in t hours.
Speed of water = 15 km/hr
Diameter of the pipe = 14/100 m
Radius of the pipe (r) = 7/100 m
Volume of water flowing out of the pipe in 1 hour
= π r 2 h
= (22/7) x (7/100) x (7/100) x 15000
= 231 m3
Volume of water flowing out of the pipe in t hours = 231 t m3.
Volume of water in the cuboidal pond
= 50 x 44 x (21/100)
= 462 m3
Volume of water flowing out of the pipe in t hours = Volume of water in the cuboidal pond
So, 231 t = 462
t = 2
Thus, the required time is 2 hours.
