A bucket that weighs 3kg and a rope of negligible weight are used to draw water from a well that is 100m deep. The bucket is filled with 40 liters of water and is pulled up at a rate of 2m/s, but water leaks out of a hole in the bucket at a rate of 0.2 m/s (I think the question is supposed to say 0.2 liters/s ?). Find the work done in pulling the bucket to the top of the well.
I came across a more basic physics type problem recently and it made me interested so I have been looking into it as a side project lately. I came across this random problem which I don't have a solution for and gave it a go. Sorry if I am missing gaps in my knowledge, I just started with them
I assume that 40 liters means 40kg of weight/force.
Weight of the bucket at any given time
Am I way off?
Any help/direction is much appreciated.
