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.
