8. Razia conducted an experiment in the field related to the rate of percolation. She observed that it took 40 min for 200 mL of water to percolate through the soil sample. Calculate the rate of percolation.

Given,

Time taken to percolate = $40\ min$

Amount of water = $200\ mL$

We know,

Rate of percolation $(mL/min)$$\frac{amount\ of\ water}{percolation\ time}$

$= \frac{200\ ml}{40\ min}$

$= 5\ mL/min$

Therefore, percolation rate of water = $5\ mL/min$
