Water inlets

Inlet valve with a flow rate of 12 liters per second is filled tank for 72 minutes. How long take to fill full tank if we open one more such valve half an hour after?

Result

x =  51 min

Solution:


12*60*72=x*(12*60)+(x-30)*(12*60)

1440x = 73440

x = 51

Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? Tip: Our volume units converter will help you with converion of volume units. Most natural application of trigonometry and trigonometric functions is a calculation of the triangles. Common and less common calculations of different types of triangles offers our triangle calculator. Word trigonometry comes from Greek and literally means triangle calculation.
