A cynlindrical storage tank has a radius of 1.45 m. When filled to a height of 3.40 m, it holds 15500 kg of a liquid industrial solvent. What is the density of the solvent?


Expert Answer

Step 1


Radius of cylindrical tank (r) = 1.45 m

Mass of solvent (m) = 15500 kg

Height of filled solvent (h) = 3.4 m

Step 2

Formula used:

Density of matter is given by,
