A chemical plant has four tanks (A, B, C, and D), each containing 1000 litres of a chemical. The chemical is being pumped from one tank to another as follows:
From A to B @ 20 litres/minute
From C to A @ 90 litres/minute
From A to D @ 10 litres/minute
From C to D @ 50 litres/minute
From B to C @ 100 litres/minute
From D to B @ 110 litres/minute
Which tank gets emptied first, and how long does it take (in minutes) to get empty after pumping starts?
After 1 min the cans will contain following amount of chemicals : A - 1060 B - 1030 C - 970 D - 950
So, we can see that the can D loses 50 ltrs in 1 min which is highest. So the can D will lose 1000 ltrs in 20*1 = 20 mins.
