To start, we will find the cross sectional area of the pipes. Pipe with radius of 2 inches Cross sectional area = PI x radius2 = 12.56 inches2 Pipe with radius of 3 inches Cross sectional area = PI x radius2 = 28.26 inches2 Pipe with radius of 5 inches Cross sectional area = PI x radius2 = 78.5 inches2 As the cross sectional area of the pipe with a radius of 5 inches (78.5 inches2) is greater than the sum of the cross sectional areas of the pipes with radii of 2 inches and 3 inches (40.82 inches2), it can be concluded that the pipe with a radius of 5 inches will be able to carry the most water.
