Unformatted text preview: characteristics of inverse relationship. (b) Assume that t is time. Then, outflow rate would be 25t*k. Since inflow rate is 25t, reservoir size would be 25t 25t*k = 25t(1-k). The reservoir reaches steady state when outflow rate equals inflow rate. Since k is constant, t is the only variable which can satisfy this situation. Given this, the reservoir reaches steady state when t = 1/k. Graph showing this relationship is below....
