Hi guys, I'm completely stuck here when doing related rates questions. Here is the question, and following the setup I have so far.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Water is leaking out of an inverted conical tank

at a rate of 10,00cm^3/min at the same time that water is

being pumped into the tank at a constant rate. The tank has

height 6m and diameter at top is 4m. IF the water level is

rising at a rate of 20cm/min when the height of water is

2m, find teh rate at which water is being pumped into the

tank.

------------------

d = 4m

h = 6m

2m = 20cm/min.

v = (1/3) (pi) r^2 h

dl/dt = 10,000cm^3/min (rate at which water leaves cone)

dp/dt = ? (rate at which water is being pumped into cone)

thats really all I have. I don't know where to go after that. Any help is appreciated.
