SI Fluid Measure


If a cylindrical container has a base area of \(12 \text{ cm}^2\) and a height of \(6 \text{ cm}\), how many mL of water can it hold?

Liquefied natural gas is filled in a horizontal cylindrical tank, as shown above. The diameter of the circular base and the length of the cylindrical tank are \(d=6\text{ m}\) and \(l=14\text{ m},\) respectively, and the height of the liquefied natural gas is \(h=3\text{ m}.\) Find the volume of the liquefied natural gas in the tank.

\(18 0\text{ mL}\) of water is poured into a cylindrical cup with base area \(30\text{ cm}^2\) and height \(15 \text{ cm}.\) What is the height of the water inside the cup?

In the figure above, a water reservoir has a rectangular base floor with dimensions \(3\text{ km}\times 2\text{ km}\) and a depth of \(8 \text{ m}.\) If this reservoir is half-full, what is the volume of the water in liters?

What is \(8\text{ L}\) in \(\text{m}^3?\)
