Two type of "barrel" units were in use in the 1920s in the United States. The apple barrel had a legally set volume of 7056 cubic inches. The cranberry barrel, 5826 inches. If a merchant sells 50 cranberry barrels of goods to a customer who thinks he is receiving apple barrels, what is the discrepancy in the shipment volume in liters?

The first disrepancy(in cubic inches) I get 61500. I multiplied both volumes by 50 and took the difference, was this the right approach? I then converted this number 61500 to L and got 1.007L which is not correct. hmm

2. A cubic centimeter in a typical cumulus cloud contains 50 to 500 water drops, which have a typical radius of 10 µm. For that range, give the lower value and the higher value, respectively, for the following.

(a) How many cubic meters of water are in a cylindrical cumulus cloud of height 2.5 km and radius 1.5 km?

to m3

(b) How many 1 liter pop bottles would that water fill?

to bottles

(c) Water has a mass per unit volume (or density) of 1000 kg/m3. How much mass does the water in the cloud have?

Do I use the v=PIxr^2xh formula to compute the volume asked for in part A? I have a feeling I'll be plugging in 50 and 500 for max and min values somewhere bu thonestly I don't even know where to start in this problem. Any help would be hihgly appreciated!
