## Calculate the volume of material used in making 100 ft of 4 in. type L copper tubing.

To determine

Find the volume of material used in the making of 100ft of 4inch type L copper tubing.

### Explanation of Solution

Given data:

The length of the copper tube (l) is 100ft,

The nominal size of the type L copper tube is 4inches.

Formula used:

Formula to calculate the volume of material used in type L copper tube is,

V=π4(Do2Di2)(l) (1)

Here,

Do is the outside diameter of the copper tube,

Di is the inside diameter of the copper tube,

l is the length of the copper tube.

Calculation:

The following common data is obtained from the dimensions and physical characteristics of the type L copper tube for the nominal size of 4inch from the copper tube handbook of industry standard guide of the design and installation of the copper piping systems.

The outside diameter of the tube (Do) is 4.125inches,

The inside diameter of the tube (Di) is 3.905inches.

Convert the given value of length from foot to inch by using the following expression.

1ft=12inch

Therefore,

l=100ft=100(12inches)=1200inches

Substitute 4.125inches for Do, 3.905inches for Di, and 1200inches for l in equation (1) to find V.

V=π4((4
