So this one should be simple to solve with some maths.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is a boat of height 15 metres (measured from sea-level) and there is a rope hanging from its deck so that the distance from the sea-level is half the third of the boat's height.

It is given that the sea-level is rising at the constant rate of 1.75 cm/s. After how much time will the rope be wet?
