(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A cylinder with varying diameters is being filled and emptied at the same time. The time is measured.

I know Flow rate into cylinder. How do I find the height of fluid in the cylinder at a particular time?

The diameter of the hole is 0.005m.

The diameter of the bottom of the cylinder is 4cm.

The diameter of the top of the cylinder is 6cm.

I don't know Qout nor height, h.

2. Relevant equations

Qout= A. Cd. SQRT(2.g.h)

3. The attempt at a solution

At time=0 sec: change in height of fluid is 0

At time=1 sec: change in height of fluid is (Qin-Qout)/Area of cylinder
