2. A tank has a volume of 8000 gallons and is 50% full. If the tank contains water, which has a density of 8.33 lbs/gallon, how many lbs. of water are in the tank?
The Attempt at a Solution
Volume occupied is 50% i.e 4000 gallons , given that the density is 8.33 lbs/gallons
Therefore, the mass occupied by water in lbs is given by
mass =volume x density = 8000gallon x 8.33/gallon33320
