Time to run out water (Posted on 2006-07-13) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Consider a solid sphere (capable of withstanding full vacuum) of 3m diameter filled completely with water resting at sea level. It has a 10cm hole at the bottom with a cork on it. If you open the cork, what is the time taken for water to completely drain out.

What happens for higher diameter spheres?
