3-7. According to the problem, the volume of the horizontal cylindrical tank is given by: ( 2 2 sin 2 LR R α − α ) VL (1) where α is a function of time. If we try to calculate the value of h (high) with this definition of variables, we have: cos( ) 2 R hR α =+⋅ (2) Then: h = 0 when α = 360 o h = R or H/2 when α = 180 o h = 2R or H when α = 0 o To calculate the variation of the α with time: dV Q dt ρ ⋅= (3) Now, plugging 3 into 1: () 2 2 sin 2 dL R Q dt πα  
