Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsey on Monday, July 9, 2012 at 10:34pm.

Assume you construct a new water tower for a town water supply. Assume the tank is in the shape of a sphere with a diameter of 21ft. Assume the tank is made of formes and welded .5 in steel plate that weighs 150 lb per ft3. What is the weight on each of the four support legs when the tank is 85% full of water? Neglect the wieght of the support legs and water piping.

Not sure how to get volume of the .5 in thick steel tank (Just the steel material). I can calculate the water volume of the tank.

Im assuming the volume of the water is determined from diamter of 21 ft of the sphere.
