what is weight density (lbs/ft3)of a fluid filling a cylinder 1.4 ft high and cross section area of 0.2ft2 if the fluid weighs 15.1 lbs?

• groundwater science -

Divide the weight (which you were given) by the volume (which is that of a cylnder). The volume should be in cubic feet, and is area x height.
