1.Main Show Tank
The main tank has a radius of 70ft. What is the volume of the quartersphered sized tank. Round your answer to the nearest whole number. You
To find the volume of the quarter sphere sized tank, first you need to find the
volume of the sphere.
1. 4/3*3.14(70*70*70) = 1,436,026.67ft
Next you will need to the find the volume of the main show tank by dividing
the volume of the sphere by four.
2. 1436026.67/4 = 359,006.6675
359,007
2.Holding Tanks
The holding tanks are congruent in size and both are in shape of a cylinder
that has been cut in half vertically. the bottom of the tank is a curved surface.
What is the the volume of both tanks if the radius of the tank #1 is 15 feet
and the height if tank #2 is 120 feet. You must explain your answer using
Since the formula for cylinders volume is V=r2h, you would just plug in the
the feet and the height.
3.14*15^2*120
3.14*225*120
706.5*120
84,780ft
The volume is 84,780ft for one whole tank, but the tanks are half of a
cylinder, so that means that the volume would be half of what the whole
would be. One tank volume would be 42,390ft. Now we would multiply that
by two to get the volume of both tanks which is 84,780ft. The volume of both
tanks are 84,870ft.
3. Density Calculations
In step 1 you found the volume ( in cubic feet ) of the main tank. If the
maximum density of killer whales per cubic feet is 0.000011142 what is the
maximum number of killer whales allowed in the main show tank at any given
time? You must explain your answer using words and you must show all your
work and calculations to receive credit.
To find the maximum number of killer whales allowed in the main show tank
you would have to multiply the volume of the main show tank times the
maximum of the killer whales.

0.000011142*359189=4.002
Density
The stadium is in need of a medical pool to attend to injured or sick whales.
The pool will be located adjacent to the holding tanks. Your job is to design a
medical pool using a 3-dimensional polyhedral shape you learned about in
this module. For safety reasons, the tank can be no more than one-fourth the
volume of a holding tank. You will need to submit a 2-dimensional drawing,
the dimensions, the volume of your pool, and proof that the pool's volume is
no more than one-fourth the volume of a holding tank to your instructor.
Since the medical pool could not be more than one-fourth of the holding tank,
now you would have t divide the volume of one holding tank (84,780) by four
and that would give you 21,195ft. So now that i have come up with a radius
of 9 and a height of 72ft.When you plug in the numbers into the V=r2h
formula.
V=3.14*9^2*72
3.14*81*72
3.14*5832
18312.48ft
The volume of the medical pool is 18,312ft
4. Reflection Question 1
The theme park company is building a scale model of the killer whale stadium
main show tank for an investor's presentation. Each dimension will be made 6
times smaller to accommodate the mock-up in the presentation room. How
many times smaller than the actual volume is the volume of the mock-up?
The mock-up is about 216 times smaller than the volume.

5. Reflection Question 2
Using the same information from #5, what percent of change occurred from
the actual tank to the mock-up of the tank?
21,600% of change

6. Reflection Question 3
If you were to take a cross section parallel to the base of one of the holding
tanks, how would you describe the shape?
I would describe the shape as a half circle.
