### How many gallons in an 88" x 15" x 9" trough?

try this :

Instructions
1. Measure the rectangle length, width and height. For example, 8 inches long, 6 inches wide, 10 inches high.
2. Multiply the length by the height, then double the product. With this example, 8 inches multiplied by 10 inches results in 80 square inches, which multiplied by 2 equals 160 square inches.
3. Multiply the width by the length, then double the product. With this example, 6 inches multiplied by 8 inches equals 48 square inches, which multiplied by 2 equals 96 square inches.
4. Multiply the height by the width, then double the product. With this example, 10 inches multiplied by 6 inches results in 60 square inches, which multiplied by 2 equals 120 square inches.
5. Sum the amounts from Steps 1 through 3 to find the rectangle surface area. So adding 160, 96 and 120 square inches results in 376 square inches.

### Calculate gallons of a tank

I assume the length of a side is 16 in, and the height of the prism is 23 inches.
Volume of a prism is V_prism=(Area of base)*(height of prism)
Area of base is made up of the area of the 6 equilateral triangles with sides =16 inches. The height of such triangles is given by 8*SQRT(3).
Use the Pythagorean theorem or the trigonometric ratios to find the height of each of the 6 traingles.
Area of base =6*16*(8*SQRT(3))/2 sq in
Volume =6*8*8*23*SQRT(3) cubic inches
Calculate the value in cubic inches and convert to gallons: I leave that task to you.

### What size cone is needed to hold 150 gallons

You need a cone with a volume of 150 gallons.
The volume of a right circular cone is given by the formula
V_cone=(Area of base *height)/3
Since cone is circular , its base is a disk with a certain radius r. The formula becomes PI*(r^2)*h/3
As you see there are two variables, the radius and the height. There is an infinite number of combinations (radius, height) that will give you a total volume of 150 gallons. You can choose the radius (r) and solve for h, or you can choose the height then solve for the radius.
I suggest you convert gallons to cubic feet or to cubic meters then put
V=Pi*(r^2)*h/3 where V is the value of volume after conversion.
If you choose the radius, then to isolate h, h=(3*V)/(Pi*r^2)
If you choose the height, then to solve for r
r^2=(3V)/(Pi*h)
and r=square root of (3V/(Pi*h))
Now, it is your turn to carry out the rest of the calculation.
It will consist of the value of the radius, and the value of the height.
If the cone is not right circular, the situation becomes more complicated.

### Solid mensuration problem solving

First a square has equal sides, it means s= square root of 225 = 15.
Height of the base is equal to 15. Volume of the prism = Base area x Height = 225(15) = 3375 cu. cm x 1 liter / 1000 cu. cm = 3.375 liters
Ans = 3.375 liters

### Need tub capacity

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Measuring tape

1.

Measure the depth from inside the washer with a measuring tape. Start from the back of the inside of the washer towards you to the front of the washer. Measure the depth from a top loading washer from the bottom of the inside of the washer to the top. For example, a washing machine may have a depth of two feet.
2.

Measure the height inside the washer unit. The height inside the washer is from the bottom of the inside of the washer to the top of the inside of the washer for a front loading washing. The height is from one side of the inside of the washer to the other side in a top loading washer. For example, the inside of a washer may be one and a half feet, or 1.5 feet.
3.

Divide the height calculated in step 2 by two, and square it. In the example, 1.5 divided by two equals 0.75, and 0.75 to the power of 2 equals 0.5625.
4.

Multiply the number calculated in step 3 by the depth of the washing machine. In the example, 0.5625 times two equals 1.125.
5.

Multiply the number calculated in step 4 by Pi to determine the capacity. Pi is generally estimated as 3.14. In the example, 1.125 times 3.14 equals a washer capacity of 3.5325 cubic feet

### I need to calculate the number of 55 gallon drums that can be placed in a containment pool that measures 8 ft in diameter, and 2 ft. in height. The containment vessel has to hold 110% of the material in...

Calculate the volume of one 55 gallon drum by using this formula
22/7 X Radius squared X hight of cylinder = Volume of large vessel.
22/7 X 48" (Squared) X 24" = Volume in cu in

100.57 cu ft in large pool = 752.315 US gals.
110% of 50 gals = 60.50 gals
752.315 divided by 60.5 = 12.43 drums
Draw to scale the large poola nd then draw to scale the smaller drums and see if 13 drums fit.

### I have a tube 7.5m long. The internal diameter is 172mm. How do I work out, what the cubic capacity is for liquid of this tube?

The volume of a tube is the area of the base times the height.
In your case you were given the diameter of the tube.
D = 172mm
I converted this to meters right away so that the units are the same.
The area of a circle is pi x (radius)^2
Divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius.
R = .086m
Pi = 3.14159....
The area of the base of your tube is pi x (.086)^2
A = 0.023 m^2

To find the volume of the entire tube, multiply the height by the area.

V = H x A
V = 7.5m x 0.023m^2

V=0.174 m^3
