Find how much water a tank would hold if it is a right circular cylinder with a height of 10 feet and a radius of 5 feet.

Right circular cylinder height is 10feet

Basically here we are required to find the volume.

Volume of a cylinder is given by the base area multiplied by the height

Base area is the area of a circle given by pi x radius ^2

=22/7 x( 5 feet)  ^2

To make it easier to get the volume in liters we can convert the feet to M

5ft=1.524m

10 ft=3.048cm

Base area is:

=22/7 x (1.524)^2

= 7.299525 Sqr M  x 3.048m

=22.24895 Cubic Meters

Convert cubic meters in to liters

1cubic meter = 1000 liters

22.24895 = ?

22.24895 x 1000

=22,248.95 Liters

I am a little lost as to how you got what you did.

Let me explain in a graphical solution. Specify the part you cant understand please

Where these numbers

5ft=1.524m

10 ft=3.048cm

come from

for simplicity, I converted the feet to metres

5 feet is the same as 1.524 meters

10 feet is just the same as 3.048 meters. ( Sorry this is not centimeters its meters)

Now please note that 1 meter is the same as 3.28084 feet

22/7 is the value of pi, it is the same as 3.14
