In summary, we are asked to find the amount of water that comes out in each of the 100 holes in a rectangular water tank with a base length of 200 cm, given that the measurement of the water's height in the tank may have an error of ± 1 cm. This can be solved using differential equations.

Consider the rectangular water tank, at the base the length is the same for 200 cm. There are 100 holes for water to come out which each hole have the same flow rate. Find the amount of water that come out in each hole by using differential when we know that there is an error in the measurement of the height of the water in the tank is not exceed ± 1 cm. ?

## 1. What is a related rates calculus problem about a water tank?

A related rates calculus problem about a water tank involves finding the rate of change of a quantity, such as the water level in the tank, as it relates to other changing quantities, such as the rate of water flow into the tank.

## 2. How do you set up a related rates calculus problem about a water tank?

To set up a related rates calculus problem about a water tank, you will need to identify all the changing quantities involved, such as the water level, the rate of water flow, and the dimensions of the tank. Then, you can use the chain rule to express the rate of change of one quantity in terms of the others.

## 3. What are some common real-life applications of related rates calculus problems about water tanks?

Some common real-life applications of related rates calculus problems about water tanks include determining the rate at which a swimming pool is being filled or drained, calculating the rate at which water is being pumped into or out of a storage tank, and finding the rate at which water is leaking from a container.

## 4. What are the key steps to solving a related rates calculus problem about a water tank?

The key steps to solving a related rates calculus problem about a water tank are: 1) Identify the changing quantities involved; 2) Write an equation that relates these quantities; 3) Differentiate both sides of the equation with respect to time; 4) Substitute in the given values and solve for the desired rate of change.

## 5. What are some tips for solving related rates calculus problems about water tanks?

Some tips for solving related rates calculus problems about water tanks include: 1) Clearly labeling all given values and unknown quantities; 2) Drawing a diagram to visualize the problem; 3) Using the chain rule correctly; 4) Checking your answer for reasonableness; and 5) Practicing with different types of related rates problems to improve your problem-solving skills.
