Using 3.14 for pi, rounding to the nearest tenth, if necessary. A spherical storage tank has a diameter of 48 ft and is full of water. How many delivery trucks with cylindrical tanks measuring 8 ft in diameter and 10 ft long can be completly filled from the storage tank?

  • Math - ,

    You gave the diameter of the large storage tank but not its height.
    So we don't have enough information.

    Each smaller tank on a truck has a volume of
    π(4^2)(10) = 502.4

    Once you know height of the large tank
    evaluate its volume using the same step I took above, then divide that answer by 502.4
