If a cylindrical tank holds 100,000 gallons of water, whichcan be drained from the bottom of the tank in an hour, thenTorricelli's Law gives the volume V of water remaining inthe tank after t minutes as:
V(t)= 100,000( 1- {t/60})2
for: 0 is less than or equal to t which is lessthan or equal to 60
Find the rate at which the water is flowing out of the tank(the instantaneous rate of change of V with respect tot) as a function of t. What are its units? Fortimes t=0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 min, find the flow rate andthea mount of water remaining in the tank. Summarize your findingsin a sentence or two. At what time is the flow rate the greatest?The least?

You are on the roof of the physics building, 46.0 m above the ground. Your physics professor, who is 1.80 tall, is walking along side the building at a constant speed of 1.20 m/s. If you wish to drop an egg on your professor's head, how far from the building should the professor be when you release the egg? Assume that the egg is in free fall.Take the free fall acceleration to be \(\displaystyle{9.80}\ {\frac{{{m}}}{{{s}^{{2}}}}}\)
