The half of the volume of water in a rectangular base tank is 2.52 cubic meters. Find the depth of the tank if the area of the base of the tank is 5600 square cm.
Given that the half volume of the tank is 2.52 cubic meters.
Let us convert the volume into cubic cm for easy calculation.
Full volume of the tank = 2 x 2.52 x 100 x 100 x 100 cubic cm.
Given that the area of the rectangular base(lb) = 5600sq cm
We know that the volume of the rectangular base tank = V = lbh
Then the depth(height) of the tank = h = V/lb
Here, h = 2 x 2.52 x 100 x 100 x 100 / 5600
h = 5040000/5600
h = 900 cm or 9 m.
Hence the depth of the tank is 9 m.
