# FAQ: Water Pipe Questions?

## How do you solve a tap question?

Tap C empties out 1/9 th part of the tank in 1 hour. Thus, in 1 hour (1/8 + 1/10 – 1/9) part of the tank is filled. (45 + 36 – 40)/360 = 41/360 th part of the tank is filled. Thus, tank will be filled completely in 360/41 hours, when all the three taps A, B and C are opened together.

## How much time a tank would take to be filled by 3 pipes?

So when all 3 pipes work together, total inflow of water into the cistern per minute is 2+(8/9)+(1/2)=61/18 liters. Time needed to fill 122 liters = 122/(61/18) = (122*18)/61 = 2*18 = 36 minutes.

## How do you solve a pipe and cistern problem?

Steps to Solve Pipes and Cistern with Trick Take the LCM of a given Number and that LCM will be the total capacity of cistern or. tank. Add or Subtract According to a particular question. The LCM from Step 1. will be the total work. Divide the total capacity of cistern or tank with the outcome of Step 2.

## How long would it take for both pipes to fill the swimming pool together?

Answer: 10.5 hours/ 10 hours and 30 mins.

## How long does it take to fill up a tank?

= (Volume of tank ) / (Volume of water flow in 1 sec) = 0.48/0.0025 = 192 sec. Time taken to fill the tank = 0.0025 / 0.48 = 0.005 sec.

## How do you calculate tank capacity?

Find the volume of your tank. To determine the volume of a rectangular tank, multiply the length (l) times the width (w) times the height (h). The width is the horizontal distance from side to side.

## Can fill a tank in 6 hours after half the tank is filled three more similar taps are opened what is the total time taken to fill the tank completely?

Explanation: Time taken by one tap to fill half of the tank = 3 hrs. So, total time taken = 3 hrs. 45 mins.

## How do you calculate tank capacity in pipes and cisterns?

Let the capacity of the tank = LCM of (12,15, 6) = 60 litres. If all the pipes are opened simultaneously, (5+4-10) litres will be filled in a minute.

## How much time will the leak take to empty the full cistern?

Leak will empty the full cistern in 90 hours. Clearly, both I and II are necessary to answer the question. Correct answer is (E).

## What is the formula of time and work?

Important Time and Work Formula Work Done = Time Taken × Rate of Work. Rate of Work = 1 / Time Taken. Time Taken = 1 / Rate of Work. If a piece of work is done in x number of days, then the work done in one day = 1/x.
