Textbook Problem

An oil refinery has storage tanks in the shape of right circular cylinders. Each tank has a height of 16 ft and a radius length of 10 ft for its circular base. If 1 ft 3 of volume contains 7.5 gallon of oil, what is the capacity of the fuel tank in gallons? Round the result to the nearest hundred of gallons.

To determine

To find: The capacity of the fuel tank in gallons.

Explanation

Given:

An oil refinery has storage tanks in the shape of right circular cylinders. Each tank has a height of 16 ft and a radius of 10 ft for its circular base. 1 ft3 of volume contains 7.5 gal of oil.

Formula used:

The volume of the circular cylinder is V=πr2h.

Calculation:

Let r and h be the radius and height of the circular cylinder.

We have r=10,h=16

Substitute the values in V=πr2h
