Textbook Problem

Assume it takes 7.00 minutes to fill a 30.0-gal gasoline tank. (a) Calculate the rate at which the tank is filled in gallons per second. (b) Calculate the rate at which the tank is filled in cubic meters per second. (c) 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)

(a)

To determine
The rate at which the tank is filled in gallons per second.

Explanation

Given Info: The fill the tank 30gal gasoline, it requires 7min .

Explanation:

Calculating the rate at which the tank will fill is,

rate=(30gal)(7min)(1min)(60sec)=7

(b)

To determine
The rate at which the tank is filled in cubic meter per second.

(c)

To determine
The time interval required to fill the tank of 1m3 volume at the same rate
