Oh, really sorry. I didn't notice that. So, it should be 400,000L.
irspow is right! A metre³ of any substance is 1,000 litres!
I might be nitpicking but VR Hawks posted a solution of 400L when the answer was 400m³. That would be 400,000L of water.
Nice post, VR Hawks Its interesting to note that you are from Hongkong.
Actually, I noticed that MathIsFun was and is our "emperor" and captain, a captain with capable knowledge to solve our problems.
You have realized that a bit too late. I knew that he had a lot of sense and was a friendly person the day I registered in the forum. MathsIsFun is our Commander.
You've got sense, MathIsFun!
Not curious...the area formula for a cone is 1/3 the area of a cylinder. Actually a cone is just a tapered cylinder anyway.
Curious fact: the water would fill a cone of the same dimensions.
To find out the cylindrical container's total volume, refer to the calculations below.
The volume of the cylinder is the base time the height and you are given that information.
a cylindrical container has a base area 100 m2 and is 12 m high. if the container is one-third filled with water, what is the volume of the water in the container?
