Q:

You have an outdoor swimming pool that is 5.0 m wide and 12.0 m long. If weekly evaporation is 2.35 in, how many gallons of water must be added to the pool each week (if it doesn't rain)?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Water should be greater than 946.11 gallons per week to prevent the pool from drying.Step-by-step explanation:You have an outdoor swimming pool that is 5.0 m wide and 12.0 m long. The height of water evaporated is = 2.35 inchWe will convert this to m.1 inch = 0.0254 meterSo, 2.35 inch = [tex]2.35\times0.0254=0.05969[/tex] meterNow, volume of water in the pool = [tex]5\times12\times0.05969=3.5814[/tex] cubic meter per week.1 cubic meter = 264.172 gallonsSo, 3.5814 cubic meter = [tex]3.5814\times264.172=946.11[/tex]gallonsHence, the volume of the water that should be poured in the swimming pool should be greater than 946.11 gallons per week to prevent the pool from drying.
