Question

A glass tank contains some water. If length QR and the width RS of the tank are known. What other distance must be known to calculate the volume of the water?

A glass tank contain some water

A Glass Tank Contain Some Water

In figure shows a glass tank containing some water. QR is the length and RS is the width of the tank

Choices

Choice (4) Response

a.

ST

b.

TU

c.

TV

d.

SV

Answer

a.

Explanation

Here in given figure, water inside the glass tank filled till height ST.

Now, to find the volume we must know about Length, breath and height.

Here length and width QR and RS is given respectively.

And height is ST = RU

Here only ST is unknown

So, we need ST distance.
