Nopes. Try and have a think about it yourself and post your own attempt and we'll try and help you, we're not gonna do it for you.
4. Apologies, I thought that I had attached the Question and my attempt.

Please see below the Question: use dimensional analysis toestimate the time of an ideal liquid outflow from the cylindrical tank with crosssection of A1 and high of h. In the bottom of the tank is a small hole withcross section of A2. In order to find solution you have to assume that:
The fluid velocity does notdepend on the diameter of the hole.The time of outflow is inverselyproportional to the cross section of the hole.
The time of outflow is directlyproportional to the cylinder cross section.
