What is the heating capacity, in BTUs, of a cylindrical storage tank of propane with a radius of 3 feet and a height of 10 feet? Assume that 1 cubic foot of propane contains 2,516 BTUs and 1 cubic foot of natural gas contains 1,030 BTUs. Use 3.14 for pi, and round your answer to the nearest BTU.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but they want you to round π to 3.14 so it comes out to 282.6 ft³ when you do that
