Inlet: A pipe connected with a tank or a cistern or a reservoir that fills it, is known as an inlet.

Outlet: A pipe connected with a tank or cistern or reservoir emptying it, is known as an outlet.

  • If a pipe can fill a tank in x hours, then:part filled in 1 hour = 1 / x
  • If a pipe can empty a tank in y hours, then:part emptied in 1 hour = 1
  • If a pipe can fill a tank in y/x hours and another pipe can empty the full tank in y hours (where y > x), then on opening both the pipes, then the net part filled in 1 hour = (1/x – 1/y)
  • If a pipe can fill a tank in x hours and another pipe can empty the full tank in y hours (where x > y), then on opening both the pipes, then the net part emptied in 1 hour = (1/y – 1/x)
