# Butter

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

Result

V =  1871 gal

#### Solution:

$h=55 \ \text{ft} \ \\ D=18 \ \text{ft} \ \\ \ \\ r=D/2=18/2=9 \ \text{ft} \ \\ S=\pi \cdot \ r^2=3.1416 \cdot \ 9^2 \doteq 254.469 \ \text{ft}^2 \ \\ \ \\ V_{1}=S \cdot \ h=254.469 \cdot \ 55 \doteq 13995.7953 \ \text{ft}^3 \ \\ V=V_{1} \rightarrow gal=V_{1} / 7.48051948 \ gal=1870.96569 \ gal=1871 \ \text{gal}$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
