If a tank holds 5000 gallons of water, which drains from the bttomof the tank in 40 minutes, then torricelli's Law gives the volume Vof water remaining in the tank after t minutes (1t402)5000=V0t40.
Find the rate at which water is draining from the tank after (a) 5min, (b) 10 min. At what time is the water flowing out the fastest?the slowest?

Find the rate at which water is draining from the tank after (a) 5min, (b) 10 min. At what time is the water flowing out the fastest?the slowest?
WATER FLOWN OUT IN TIME T=W=50005000[1T2/40]
DW/DT =5000(2T)/40=250T
AT T=5..RATE OF WATER OUT FLOW=DW/DT =2505=1250
AT T=10
DW/DT=25010=2500 GPM
AS PER THE GIVEN EQN.WATER LOW RATE (=250T)IS INCREASING WITHT AND HENCE HIGHEST AT T=40 AND T=0
BUT THIS APPEARS PHYSICALLY FAULTY AND THEGIVEN EQN.APPEARS TO BE DOUBT FULL

The rate at which water is draining from the tank is the derivative of V(t). Use the chain rule to find dVdt.

V(t)=5000(1140t)2

Chain rule : ddx(f(g(x)))=f(g(x))g(x)

f(x)=5000x2,g(x)=1x40

f(x)=2(5000)x,g(x)=140

dVdt=2(5000)(1140t)(140)=250(1140t)

Step 2

Plug in t=5 to find the flow rate at that point in time. The volume of water in the tank decreases by this amount, so the flow rate must have this magnitude (the negative sign isn't necessary on the answer).

dVdt=250(1140(5))=218.75 gallonsmin

218.75 gallonsmin

An atomic nucleus initially moving at 420 m/s emits an alpha particle in the direction of its velocity, and the remaining nucleus slows to 350 m/s. If the alha particle has a mass of 4.0u and the original nucleus has a mass of 222u. What speed does the alpha particle have when it is emitted?

Is acceleration due to gravity constant?
I was taught in school that acceleration due to gravity is constant. But recently, when I checked Physics textbook, I noted that
F = G m 1 m 2 r 2 .
So, as the body falls down, r must be changing, so should acceleration due to gravity.

How do you calculate the acceleration due to gravity of a massive object (black hole)
Is there an online calculator to find the acceleration of gravity a massive object exerts from a specific distance? I know the effects of gravity kind of just fade out with distance but I'm asking for mass-specifics.
For example, you plug in the mass of the object and the distance from the object to get the m/s^2 (and maybe even the escape velocity)???
(I'm also thinking this would be some sort of exponential graph, like "acceleration" on the y axis and "distance" on the x axis)
