Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"Always look for the question mark." That sentence usually tells you what you're looking for. Is it area, is it volume, etc? Once you know that, then you can use the appropriate formulas to find ...area or volume, etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would solved for the cylinder volume first. Since you will have the hemishphere on each end, calculate for the a sphere of the given radius. I got 399 cubic feet for the cylinder portion, and 91.595232 cubic feet for the ends giving a total cubic feet of 490.95

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Vcyl = (16.2) pi (2.8)^2 Vsph = (4/3) pi (2.8)^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I got by adding the two answers 490.95971 is that the cubic feet that will fill the tank... or more steps involved... LOL
