    Which setting would fill a container fastest?

Act Two

  • VideoGarden hose nozzle rates
  • Teacher note
    One way to compare these rates is to graph them as points with seconds on the x axis and volume on the y axis. Since all rates also have the point (0,0), these points can become lines and the slope of the lines is the rate of water flow. Steeper lines indicate greater flow rate. A horizontal line at any volume should predict the time it would take to achieve that volume for that nozzle setting.
