A cylindrical container has a height of 200cm. It was initially full but there is a leak in the bottom. When the leak is noticed, the container is half full and the level of the chemical is dropping at a rate of 1cm/minute. It is assumed that when the depth remaining is xcm, the rate at which the level is dropping is proportional to root x. Set up and solve a differential equation and hence show that the container has been leaking for about 80 minutes.

somebody else asked help for this ODE a few days ago
(I think it is the last question on the C4 OCR specimen paper).

look for that thread while you are waiting for help
