    yea but it asking for liters

  • science -

    in the problem though wouldnt the acres equal 6394608 cubic feets

  • science -

    no...bc there is no depth with in an acre, only area, there is no volume, onceyou had the rain, an inch everyhwere, you now have depth

    well than can you plz help me answer this question because it involves the same principle from the previous question

    A person owns a 170.3 acre farm which received a total of 2.70 inches of rain. How many liters of rain would that be? An acre is 43560 square feet; there are 2.54 cm in one 1 inch.

    7418268 ft^2 x .225 ft of rain = 1669110 ft^3 = 47263930 Liters

    1 acre = 43560 ft^2.
    1.64 inches = 1.64/12 = feet.
    1728 cubic inches = 1 cubic foot
    231 cubic inches = 1 gallon
    3.78 liters = 1 gallon

    146.8 acres x (43560 ft^2/acre) x (1.64/12) x (1,728 in^3/ft^3) x (1 gallon/231 ft^3) x (3.78 liters/gallon) = ??
    Check my thinking. Check my work.
