First, find out how many liters are yet to be filled:
52,000-13,000=39,000
To find out how much time is left, divide the amount yet to be filled by the rate, which is given:
39,000/90 \(\displaystyle\approx\) 433.33 minutes
Convert to hours by dividing by 60:
433.33/60=7,22 hours
It will take 7,22 hours for the water tower to get filled.

Two stationary point charges +3 nC and + 2nC are separated bya distance of 50cm. An electron is released from rest at a pointmidway between the two charges and moves along the line connectingthe two charges. What is the speed of the electron when it is 10cmfrom +3nC charge?
Besides the hints I'd like to ask you to give me numericalsolution so I can verify my answer later on. It would be nice ifyou could write it out, but a numerical anser would be fine alongwith the hint how to get there.

The student engineer of a campus radio station wishes to verify the effectivencess of the lightning rod on the antenna mast. The unknown resistance \(\displaystyle{R}_{{x}}\) is between points C and E. Point E is a "true ground", but is inaccessible for direct measurement because the stratum in which it is located is several meters below Earth's surface. Two identical rods are driven into the ground at A and B, introducing an unknown resistance \(\displaystyle{R}_{{y}}\). The procedure for finding the unknown resistance \(\displaystyle{R}_{{x}}\) is as follows. Measure resistance \(\displaystyle{R}_{{1}}\) between points A and B. Then connect A and B with a heavy conducting wire and measure resistance \(\displaystyle{R}_{{2}}\) between points A and C.Derive a formula for \(\displaystyle{R}_{{x}}\) in terms of the observable resistances \(\displaystyle{R}_{{1}}\) and \(\displaystyle{R}_{{2}}\). A satisfactory ground resistance would be \(\displaystyle{R}_{{x}}{<}{2.0}\) Ohms. Is the grounding of the station adequate if measurments give \(\displaystyle{R}_{{1}}={13}{O}{h}{m}{s}\) and R_2=6.0 Ohms?
