# Leaky bucket

**Classical Mechanics**Level 4

A bucket is lying on the ground with water up to the brim. It is lifted and a hole is made in it, right at the bottom, through which the water can escape. Find the time taken to empty the bucket (in seconds).

Height of the bucket \(=30 \ \text{cm}\)

Area of the bucket \(=60 \ \text{cm}^2\)

Area of the hole \(= 10 \ \text{cm}^2\)

\(\text{g}=9.8 \ \text{m}/\text{s}^2\)
