Textbook Problem

The amount of water in reservoirs is often measured in acre-ft. One acre-ft is a volume that covers an area of one acre to a depth of one foot An acre is 43 560 ft2. Find the volume in SI units of a reservoir containing 25.0 acre-ft of water.

To determine
The volume in SI unit of the reservoir.

Explanation

Given Info: The volume of the reservoir is 25acre-ft .

Explanation:

From unit transformation,

1m=3.281ft

43560ft2=1acre

1m2=10.765ft2

Calculating the volume of the reservoir in SI unit is,

Volume=(25acre-ft)(1m3
