4. A swimming pool with a rectangular base and having vertical sides of height, h is initially full of
water. The cleaner drain out the water through the drain plug outlet. The water drains out from
the outlet hole in the horizontal has of the pool at a rate which at any instant, is proportional to
the square root of the depth of the water at that instant.
If x is the depth of the water, at time t after the drain started is represented by the equation

√ and the swimming pool is exactly half empty after an hour, find the further time
that elapse before the pool is completely empty. [9m]
