A 2000-liter tank is full of lube oil. It is known that if lube oil is drained from the tank, the mass flow rate will decrease from the maximum when the tank level is at the highest. The following data were collected when the tank was drained.

Data
Time [min] Mass Flow [kg/min]
0 50.00
5 48.25
10 46.00
15 42.50
20 37.50
25 30.50
30 19.00
35 9.00

s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
