A cylindrical bucket is being filled with water at the rate of 2 * 10^(-3) m^3/s. The bucket itself is od diameter 1.5 m and height 2.5 m. The bucket has a small circular hole at the bottom, with diameter 3 cm. Therefore even as the bucket is being filled, there is a leakage from the bottom. At first, the water rises in the bucket. Eventually, the water stops rising when it reaches a height of h. At this point the leakage from the bottom of the bucket equals the water intake from the tap. Find this height h.

2. Relevant equations

I am not sure, we barely covered this in my class. I'm guessing A1v1 = A2v2 and Bernoulli's equation come into play somehow.

3. The attempt at a solution

I really haven't attempted it because as I stated we did really go over this so much in my class.

Thanks!
