Help needed on exponential decay

I'm doing a research about water flowing from a barrel through a small hole. I am trying to proove that there is an exponential relationship between the height level of the water and the time. This basically implies that
dh/dt= -kh.

In order to do that , I have to prove first that the rate of change of volume remaining in the barrel is proportional to the pressure.
i.e.: dV/dt = -kp. This is the bit were I got quite stuck. If someone could help me with some cool tecky ideas or some adequate sites, I would be gratefull.
