Richard has a fuel tank in the shape of a right circular cylinder. The tank has a height of 6 ft and a radius of length 1.5 ft for its circular base. If 1 ft 3 of volume contains 7.5 gal of gasoline, what is the approximate capacity of the fuel tank in gallons?

To determine

To find:

The capacity of the fuel tank in gallons.

Explanation

Given:

Richard has a fuel tank in the shape of a right circular cylinder. The tank has a height of 6 ft and a radius of 1.5 ft for its circular base. 1 ft3 of volume contains 7.5 gal of gasoline.

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=1.5,h=6

Substitute the values in V=πr2h

V=πr2h=π(1
