A severe thunderstorm dumped 2.2 in of rain in 30 min on a town of area 24 km2. What mass of water fell on the town? One cubic meter of water has a mass of 103 kg.


Expert Answer

Step 1


1 m3 of water mass = 103 kg

Density of water r = 103 kg/m3

1 inch = 0.0254 m

1 km = 1000 m

1 km2= 106 m2

Step 2

Total area of town, A

Step 3

Height of water fro...
