Oil Leak At 1:00 p.m., oil begins leaking from a tank at a rate of gallons per hour.
(a). How much oil is lost from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.?
(b). How much oil is lost from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.?
(c). Compare your answers to parts (a) and (b). What do you notice?
To calculate: The amount of oil leaking from 1pm to 4pm.
Given: The function that depicts the rate of leak is, .
Formula used: The integration will be broken to parts according to,
The time between 1pm and 4pm is three hours. The function is integrated within the limits as follows:
To calculate: The amount of oil leaking from 4pm to 7pm.
