an oil drum is 8ft high and 2 ft in diameter if the drum is half full how much is in cylinder. please show explanation

  • math -

    V = pi * r^2 * 8

    V = 3.14 * 1 * 8

    V = 25.14 cubic feet

    25.14 / 2 = ?_______ cu. ft.

  • math - correction -

    The volume is 25.12 cu. ft.

    25.12 / 2 = _____ cu. ft.
