Dear Nithin,

Radius of the pipe = 5/2 mm = 5/2 x 1/10 cm = 1/4 cm

Speed of water = 10 m/min = 1000 cm/min

Volume of water that flows in 1 minute = Π r2 h = 22/7 x 1/4 x 1/4 x 1000 = 1375/7 cm3

Radius of conical vessel = 40/2 = 20 cm; Depth = 24 cm

Therefore, Capacity of the vessel = 1/3 x Π r2 h

= 1/3 x 22/7 x 20 x 20 x 24 = 70400/7 cm3

Therefore, Time required to fill the vessel = capacity of the vessel / volume of water flowing per minute

= 70400/7 / 1375/7 = 70400/7 x 7/1375 = 256/5 minutes = 51 min 12 sec

Best Of luck

Let the radius of cylindrical pipe be r.Suppose the radius and height of the conical vessel be R and H respectively.Given: 2r = 5 mm 2R = 40 cm∴ R = 20 cmand H = 24 cmVolume of conical vessel Rate of water flow = 10 m/min = 1000 cm/min∴ Volume of water flowing out of the pipe in one minute = πr 2 � 1000 cm Let the time taken to fill the conical vessel be t minutes.∴ Volume of water flowing out of the pipe in t minutes Volume of water flowing out of the pipe in t minutes = Volume of conical vessel Thus, the time taken to fill the conical vessel is 51.2 minutes.
