Hiya, I am doing a homework about a subject we haven't really covered in class! It's very annoying.
I was just wondering if anyone would be able to help me with it. It's not so much the problem itslef, just the actual method. I just need to know if there is a litres/minute etc triangle? Like there is a distance, speed, time triangle, if that makes sense XD
If it's litres/minute I assumed that volume would go on the top spot and time udnerneath? If so, what would be in the last bottom one? Or am I completely wrong? :P
Hope you can help and hope it isn't too much trouble
Triangles are handy!!
Anyway, the problems:
1. A petrol pump fills a car with 32 litres of petrol in 2 minutes 8 seconds. Give this as a rate in
a) litres per second b) litres per minute c) litres per hour
2. Calculate the average flow of the water falling into the bath when 100 litres flow into the bath in 8 minutes.
