a dam holds 13.5 megalitres of wate when full. If water flows from the dam at the rate of 5 litres per second, approximately how long will it take to empty the dam.

  • maths -

    Try and convert mega liters to liters by multiplying it by a million and then make an equation or a proportion

  • maths -

    1 Ml = 1,000,000 l

    13.5 Ml = 13,500,000 l


    13,500,000 / 5 = 2,700,000 s = 45,000 min = 750 h = 31 day 6 h
