The height of the water, radius of the tank, location of the spigot, and the radius of the spigot can be changed by moving the sliders. The velocity of efflux and the range of the emptying water change as different parameters of the tank are modified. The 3D graphics reflect the dimensions of the cylindrical tank and the path of the water out of the spigot.
