Water has a density of about 62.5 pounds per cubic foot. Snow has a lower density than water, but that density can vary greatly. Suppose snow that is falling and settling has a density of about 16 pounds per cubic foot. 8 inches of snow has fallen and you have to shovel a sidewalk that is 40 feet long and 5 feet wide. How much snow must you shovel?
