1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A garden hose is used to fill a large metal container which can hold 24.0 L of liquid. If the radius of the garden hose's nozzle is 1.2 cm, and the speed of the water at this point is 272.0 cm/s, how long (in seconds) would it take to fill the container with water, assuming that none of it splashes out? Hint: Use the fact that 1 L = 1000 cm3 Placing all relevant data in SI; 24L = 24,000cm3 = 0.024m3 V = 272cm/s = 2.72 m/s 2. Relevant equations ΔV/Δt = Av Δt = ΔV/Av 3. The attempt at a solution ΔV(metal container) = 0.024m 3 Δt = ? A(nozzle) = ∏(0.012)2 = 0.00045m2 v(water) = 2.72m/s Δt = ΔV/Av Δt = 0.024/(0.00045)*(2.72) Δt = 19.6s Now that I've figured it out, I suppose this doesn't really belong in advanced physics - even though it is part of my undergraduate.
