A cylindrical bucket of cross-sectional area A has water in it up to an initial depth of d at t=0. The water has density p, an the gravitational acceleration is g. The water leaks out the bucket through a hole in the bottom with the rate of change of he volume of the water in the bucket proportional to the pressure in the bottom of he bucket, dV/dt=-kP, with k postive constant. Find the volume of the water in the bucket as a function of time.

I tried doing some of it but I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. Can someone help?

dV/dt=-kP = dV/dt= -k(d-g-p) = dV/(d-g-p)=-k dt = integral(dv/(d-g-p))=-kt+C
