Hi Melody,

I copy it from somewhere.

The volume of the tank is given by

V = (4/3)pi(r3)   where r is the radius

So we have

V = (4/3)pi(7.7m)3  =  about 1912.320958 m3

And 1 m3 = 1000L

So  1912.320958 x 1000 = about 1,912,321 L

A Spherical water tank is of 7.7m radius. How many liters of water can it contain

I. The Volume of the Sphere in m^3:

$$\small{\text{  \begin{array}{rcl} V &=& \frac{4}{3}\pi r^3 \\\\ V &=&\frac{4}{3}\pi (7.7)^3\\\\ V &=&\frac{4}{3}\pi * 456.533\ m^3\\\\ V &=& 1912.32095856 \ m^3 \end{array}  }}$$

II. The Volume of the Sphere in liters:

$$\small{\text{  1\ m^3 = 1000\ liters  }}$$

$$\small{\text{  V=1912.32095856\not{m^3} *\frac{1000\ liters}{1\ \not{m^3}}=1912320.95856\ l  }}$$

Volume is (4/3)*pi*radius3 and a litre is 10-3m3

So Volume = (4/3)*pi*7.73 m3 ≈ 1912 m3 = 1.912*106L

Hmm.  Plenty of answers.  Luckily they're all the same!

Alan is correct....let's put this one "in the tank."

Hi Heureka,

Did you draw that picture or did you copy it from somewhere?

If you drew it I would like to know how.  I use Geogebra mostly but I don't think that it does ellipses.

.Melody, Geogebra is certainly able to draw ellipses:
