 Question 259365: an 8-foot tall cylindrical water tank has a base of diameter 6 feet. how much water is in the tank if the water is 5 feet deep? what is the formula for the volume of water as a function of its depth in the tank?Answer by richwmiller(9144)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Depth and height are the same thing. Height is looking from the bottom and depth from the top V=pi*r^2*h V==pi*3^2*5 volume of water at 5 ft deep. V=pi*9*5 V=45*pi pi=about 3.14 radius =1/2 diameter Why didn't we use 8 ft for the height ? We didn't fill the tank all the way but only to 5 ft.
