    yes... that's right. the integral would represent the total volume (in liters) that has leaked in the two hour period.

    @GalaxyS integration basically sums up the function from lower limit to upper limit, and since limits are from 0 to 120 and r(t) is leage per minute so integration from 0 to 120 will sum up the lekage for 120 minutes thats 2 hours
