Kerosene (sp. gr. .82) leaks out of a hole 0.5 in. in diameter at the bottom of a tank at a rate of 10 gal/min. How high is the kerosene in the tank??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(hint, 1gal = 0.1337 ft^3)

So I used this formula:

R = sqrt(2*g*h) * A

and came up with 15004ft. which is completely off mark.

any ideas? :surprise:
