Homework Help: Water drops!

  1. Jan 26, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    one cubic centimeter of a typical cumulus cloud contains 50 to 500 water drops, which have a typical radius of 10 micrometers. for that range, give the lower and higher value, respectively, for the following. a) how many cubic meters of water are in a cylindrical cumulus cloud of height 3.0 km and radius 1.0 km? b) how many 1 liter pop bottles would that water fill? c) water has a density of 1000 kg/m^3. how much mass does the water in the cloud have?

    2. Relevant equations

    standard conversion factors and density (D=m/v)?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    not sure where to start on this one! this book has some really goofy ways of presenting problems and no answers in the back of the book so i never know if i am right or not. any help would be great! i am gonna work on the other 20 homework questions i have to do by friday...
