Question

Here are these questions if I could get help with them

If a spherical storage tank holds 40,000 gallons (120,000 liters) of water,
what diameter must it have?

If a cylindrical storage tank has a 40-foot (12 m) diameter circular 05::=
how high must it be to hold 1 million gallons (3 million liters)?

If water is moving at a rate of 3.2 ft3/sec (90,000 cc/sec), how many
gallons (liters) per minute is this?

If the specific gravity of gold is 19.0. what is the weight of a cubic inch
(cubic centimeter) of gold? A cubic foot (cubic meter)?

Step 1

There are four questions given in the image but we are entitled to solve only one question at a time so i will be solving the third question.

"If water is moving at a rate of 3.2 ft3/sec (90,000 cc/sec), how many
gallons (liters) per minute is this?

Step 2

Given information:

Volume of water(Q)= 3.2ft3/sec

1ft3= 7.48051948 gallons (for liquid)

Here, the given fluid is water;

Therefore,

Q= 3.2 ft3/sec = 90,000 cc/sec

Step 3

As we know;

1cm3= 0.001...
