Dear Student,
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------
Here you are asked to calculate the time the nozzle would take to fill up the cylinder.

Problem definition:
---------------------
First thing to note is that, the problem has not given us the volume of the cylinder but it has given you enough data to find the volume ourselves. We can do that.

Second, it tells us how fast the nozzle is and the nozzle diameter, which should hint ...
