If a cubic foot of water weighs approximately 62.5 pounds, find the weight of the water in a swimming pool which is 16 yards long and 12 yards wide with water to a depth of 7 feet. Answer to the nearest ton.

• Math -

16*3 = 48
12*3 = 36
so volume = 48*36*7 ft^3
so weight = 62.5*48*36*7 pounds
so weight = 62.5*48*36*7 /2000 tons
