OK, here is my problem.

There's a tank,continuously filled by water from top, at 5 L/minute flow rate. The tankhas a hole on bottom(at h=0) of it, so water also come out through it. The Area of hole is 1 cm^{2}and Area of tank is 0.25 m^{2}.

The height of the tank supposed to be very high so water can't out.

The question is about equationh(t), that isheight of water in the tank versus time.

2. Relevant equations

My teacher told us to start from Bernoulli's Law, but I'm stuck now...the problem just confused me because there iscontinuously water supply....

3. The attempt at a solution

I realized that water flow at the hole is dependent on height of the water, and height is also dependent on time.

Any idea? Please help me. Thanks in advance.
