Consider the process shown in Figure F.1. We want to study how tank level h(t) varies with inlet flow fin(t). A mass balance around the tank yields (assuming area of tank A = 1m2, and that the density ρ is constant)
Accumulation of fluid mass in tank = Input of fluid – Output of fluid:

Let us assume that outlet flow is proportional ...
