Water is flowing down a cylindrical pipe of radius r.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) Write a formula for the volume, V, of water that emerges from the end of the pipe in one second if the water is flowing at a rate of

(i) 3 cm/sec (ii) k cm/sec

(b) Graph your answer to part (a)(ii) as a function of

(i) r, assuming k is constant

(ii) k, assuming r is constant

All right, I just don't know where to start at all... I'm thinking that I'll probably need the formula for the volume of a cylinder. Besides that, I don't know what I have to do with the formula. I'm completely clueless on how to implement the rates of water flow into the volume of a cylinder formula.. if that's even what I have to do... I'm sure that if I can figure out part (a), part (b) won't be much of a problem. (just solving for different variables and graphing)
