Okay so I'm trying to work out how many mm of rain fell in a certain area.
I've got the total volume/capacity that fell (3.51125KL) and the total area that it fell in (8558.25m).
My formula is
Total Rainfall = rainfall mm x area covered
How would I make sure that all the different values corrospond? I know I'd convert the area covered into mm but I don't know about the Total Rainfall...
Also, once I have the rainfall mm do I need to square root it to ensure that I have the kind of number meteorologists use?

this is incorrect
the area must be in length squared, like m^2
By the way, convert the depth from mm into meters and do it in meters^3.
