In a measurement of precipitation (rainfall), a raingauge with an orifice (collector) area of 30.50 in2 collects 1.30 litres of water over a period of 26 minutes and 45 seconds.

Calculate:
a. The depth (amount) of rain that fell (in mm).
b. The intensity (mm h-1) at which the rain fell.
c. The volume (m3) of water that would have fallen on an area of 7.00 acres.
d. The discharge in m3 s-1 that would occur if all the water ran off the area in part c. in 3.00 hours.
e. If American gasoline is US$4.00 gallon-1, how much is that in CAN$ L-1?
