# Leaky bucket

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 $$= 10 \ \text{cm}^2$$

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