Water flows into a swimming pool at the rate

of 9.83 gal/min.

If the pool dimensions are 33.4 ft wide,

44.9 ft long and 19.9 ft deep, how long does

it take to fill the pool? (1 gallon = 231 cubic

inches)

Answer in units of min

- physics -
**drwls**, Friday, January 20, 2012 at 6:08am1 gallon = 231/1728 = 0.13368 ft^3

Pool volume = 33.4x44.9x19.9

= 29,843 ft^3

= 223,243 gallons

Divide that by the fill rate for the time required.

I have never heard of a swimming pool that deep
