Short Answer

A 6.0 m * 12.0 m swimming pool slopes linearly from a 1.0 m depth at one end to a 3.0 m depth at the other. What is the mass of water in the pool?

Mass of water in the pool is 1.44 x 105 kg.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step1: Given information

Width = 6.0 m

Length= 12.0 m

Depth increases from one end 1.0 m to other end to a 3.0 m

3Step2: Explanation

First find the volume

Mass = volume x density

Mass of water = 144 m3 x 1000 kg/m3 = 1.44 x 105 kg.
