At the Orville Redenbacher popcorn factory, there is a tank of artificial butter substitutes, which is 55 feet tall and 18 feet in diameter. How many gallons of artificial butter substitute can the tank contain?

Correct answer:

V =  1871 gal

Step-by-step explanation:

h=55 ft D=18 ft  r=D/2=18/2=9 ft S=π r2=3.1416 92254.469 ft2  V1=S h=254.469 5513995.7953 ft3 V=V1 gal=V1/7.48051948  gal=13995.7953/7.48051948  gal=1871 gal=1871 gal
