Unformatted text preview: Oil is leaking out of a container at a decreasing rate. Time (hrs.) 2 4 6 8 Rate (liters/hr.) 35 26 23 19 18 We want to estimate the total amount of oil that has leaked out of the container during the time shown. 1. What is the maximum amount of oil that could have leaked out during the first two hours? The minimum? 2. What is the maximum amount of oil that could have leaked out during the second two hour period(i.e. between t = 2 and t = 4)? The minimum? 3. During the entire eighthour interval from t = 0 to t = 8, what is the maximum amount of oil that could have leaked out? the minimum? Explain where you used the assumption that the rate at which the oil was leaking was decreasing. 4. If you had to guess how much oil actually leaked out, what would you guess?...
