Bucket Project

Geometry

Diameter and Radius

the diameter of the Bucket is 11.75''

The Radius of the Bucket is 9.5''

Height and Volume

Height is 9.5''

Volume is 1038

1.6 seconds a cup

Problem solving

flow rate=1/4 π(11.8)squared x velocity


flow rate= 108.8

V=πr2h

I measured the bucket too get a height of 11.75'' and a Radius of 5.9'', which i then doubled to get a diameter of 11.8''. I then used those numbers to get the volume by multiplying π by the Radius squared and multiplying that by the height. which gave me 1038. Then i took the fact that the water was flowing 11.6 seconds per cup by 68.8,which equals 789.08. which i divided by 60 to get 13:30. Then to Account for the pressure being stronger when the water is fuller, I added about 2 minutes to the time to try to account for the peed of the water varying and slowing down a lot when the water is low. which gave me 15:30.

Final Anwser

15:30
