- Homework Statement
- Given a water tank in the shape of a right circular cone with radius of the base 4 feet and altitude of 10 feet. Water is added to the tank at a constant rate of 5 cubic feet per minute. Find the rate at which the water level is rising when the depth of the water is 5 feet when:

- Relevant Equations
- V=(1/3)pir^2h
