I have this homework problem and I can't figure it out:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

All I can figure out is the volume of the sphere =/ Suppose you have a perfectly spherical water tank with an inside diameter of 8.6 metres. If the drain at the bottom of the tank can't handle a hydrostatic pressure of more than 50 kilopascals, what is the maximum volume of water, in litres, that can be contained in the tank? Assume that gravitational acceleration is exactly 9.81 m/s2. Please round to the nearest 10 litre increment, and please submit only a number for your answer. (For example, if you calculate the answer to be 16277 litres, submit 16280 as your answer)
