Asked Sep 18, 2019

Assume it takes 10.0 min to fill a 35.0-gal gasoline tank. (1 U.S. gal = 231 in.3)

Determine the time interval, in hours, required to fill a 1.00-m3 volume at the same rate. (1 U.S. gal = 231 in.3)

Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Time taken to fill 35-gal gasoline tank (T) = 10 min

Given 1 U.S-gal = 231 in3 = 37.85 × 10-4 m3

(Since 1 in3 = 1.63 × 10-5 m3)

Hence, T is time taken to fill 37.85 × 10-4 m3 of gasoline

Step 2

Time taken to fill 1 m3 of gasoli...
