Q:

A booster pump can be used for filling as well as for emptying a tank. The capacity of the tank is 2400  m3. The emptying capacity of the tank is 10 m3 per minute higher than its filling capacity and the pump needs 8 minutes lesser to empty the tank than it needs to fill it. What is the filling capacity of the pump?

A) 50 m^3/min B) 60 m^3/min
C) 72 m^3/min D) None of these

Answer:   A) 50 m^3/min



Explanation:

Let the filling capacity of the pump be x m3/min. 

Then, emptying capacity of the pump=(x+10)m3/min.  

so,2400x-2400x+10=8 x2+10x-3000=0 

 

x-50+x+60=0 x=50

Q:

Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 16 hrs and 12 hrs respectively. The capacity of the tank is 240 liters. Both the pipes are opened simultaneously and closed after 2 hrs. How much more water need to fill the tank?

A) 70 lit B) 170 lit
C) 90 lit D) 190 lit
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 170 lit

Explanation:

Given A alone can fill the tank of capacity 240 lit in 16 hrs.

=> A can fill in 1 hr = 240/16 = 15 lit

=> B alone can fill the tank of capacity 240 lit in 12 hrs.

=> B can fill in 1 hr = 240/12 = 20 lit

Now, (A + B) in 1 hr = 15 + 20 = 35 lit

But they are opened for 2 hrs

=> 2 x 35 = 70 lit rae filled

Remaining water to be filled in tank of 240 lit = 240 - 70 = 170 lit.

Q:

Water flows into a tank which is 200 m long and 150 m wide, through a pipe of cross-section (0.3m x 0.2m) at 20 km/h. In what time will the water level be 12m  ?

A) 200 hrs B) 240 hrs
C) 300 hrs D) 270 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 300 hrs

Explanation:

Volume of water collected in the tank in 1 hour

⇒ (0.3 × 0.2 × 20km × 1000mts) = 1200 m cubic

If after t hours, the water is at height of 12m,

1200t=200×150×12 

⇒ t = 300 Hours.

Q:

A Tank is normally filled in 9 hours but takes four hours longer to fill because of a leak in its bottom. If the tank is full, the leak will empty it in ?

Q:

A tap can fill a tank in 6 hours. After half the tank is filled three more similar taps are opened. What is the total time taken to fill the tank completely ?

A) 4 hrs 15 min B) 3 hrs 24 min
C) 4 hrs 51 min D) 3 hrs 45 min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 3 hrs 45 min

Explanation:

Time taken by one tap to fill half of the tank = 3 hrs.

Part filled by the taps in 1 hour = 4 x 1/6 = 2/3

Remaining part = 1 - 1/2 = 1/2

2/3 : 1/2 :: 1 : p

p = 1/2 x 1 x 3/2 = 3/4 hrs. i.e., 45 min

So, total time taken = 3 hrs 45 min.

Q:

A large tanker can be filled by two pipes A and B in 60 and 40 minutes respectively. How many minutes will it take to fill the tanker from empty state if B is used for half the time and A and B fill it together for the other half ?

A) 31 min B) 29 min
C) 28 min D) 30 min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 30 min

Explanation:

Part filled by (A + B) in 1 minute = (1/60 + 1/40) = 1/24
Suppose the tank is filled in x minutes.
Then, x/2(1/24 + 1/40) = 1
(x/2) * (1/15) = 1 => x = 30 min.

Q:

A tank is filled in eight hours by three pipes K, L and M. Pipe K is twice as fast as pipe L, and L is twice as fast as M. How much time will pipe L alone take to fill the tank ?

A) 32 hrs B) 24 hrs
C) 28 hrs D) 26 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 28 hrs

Explanation:

1/K + 1/L + 1/M = 1/8 (Given)
Also given that K = 2L and L = 2M
=> 1/2L + 1/L + 2/L = 1/8
=> (1 + 2 + 4)/2L = 1/8
=> 2L/7 = 8
=> L = 28 hours.

Q:

Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 15 min and 20 min respectively. Both the pipes are opened together but after 4 min, pipe A is turned off. What is the total time required to fill the tank ?

A) 15 min 20 sec. B) 16 min 40 sec.
C) 13 min 10 sec. D) 14 min 40 sec.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 14 min 40 sec.

Explanation:

Part filled in 4 minutes = 4(1/15 + 1/20) = 7/15

 

Remaining part = 1 - 7/15 = 8/15

 

Part filled by B in 1 minute = 1/20

 

1/20 : 8/15 :: 1 : k

 

k = (8/15 )x 1 x 20 = 10( 2/3) min = 10 min 40 sec.

 

The tank will be full in (4 min. + 10 min. 40 sec) = 14 min 40 sec.
