1.     Including the pilot, there are 14 people on a plane.  During the ride, each person produces 710 BTUs (British thermal units).  The interior of the plane measures 39 feet by 12 feet in diameter.

How many BTUs per cubic foot are produced?

 

Provide your answer rounded to the nearest hundredth.

#BTUs / volume  =

 

Volume = volume of a cylinder = pi r^2 h = pi (6^2)(39)

 

 

14 pers x 710 BTU/pers   /   pi (6^2)(39) ft^3    =  2.25 BTU/ft^3
