Question description

We get an airplane ready to fly from Calgary to Vancouver and fill up with 6000 lbs of jet fuel. Fuel is lighter than water and actually weighs about 0.8 kg per liter.

1.) How many liters of fuel did we put in there? (1 pound weighs 454 grams)

2.) When the plane lands there are 2000 lbs of fuel left. How much fuel (in liters) did we burn for each one of the 78 guests on board?

Please detailed answer, Thanks!
