Differential equations; related rate problem

  1. Sep 12, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    I know the solution is:

    dh/dt = -(cpi√h)/450

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know the give equation is dV/dT, and I know that V=h³...
    I figured that the volume at any point was equal to: V = dV/dt + Vo
    therefore I could equate h³= dV/dt + Vo but I think I'm still missing something...

    can anyone give me a clue as to how to solve this problem?
