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.
