VolumeFire trucks are supplied with water by separate pumper trucks. Some varieties of pumper trucks pump regular water. Other trucks pump water injected with special chemicals that create fire-retardant foam. Those pumper trucks have special holding tanks.

Part A: The length of the tank is 10 feet, the width is 6 feet wide. If the total volume is 360 cubic feet, how high is it?

Part B: Inside the tank, there is a pipe running end to end lengthwise. This is the pipe that injects the chemicals to create the foam. The pipe is 10 feet long. It has a diameter of 6 inches. What is the volume of the tank based off this information?

Part C:There are holes through which the chemicals flow every 5 inches, creating 24 holes. The diameter of the holes is .25 feet.
What is the lateral] surface area of the pipe?

An ice cream shop sells small, medium, and large cones. On top of each cone is a single sphere of ice cream. If the small sells for $4.00, the medium for $4.50, and the large for $5.00, which size has the most ice cream for your money if the small height is 3 inches the medium height is 5 inches and the large height is 6 inches? The radius is 2 inches for all of the cones, and it is the radius of the sphere of ice cream on top of each cone. Round to the nearest hundredth.

There’s a big car accident and the police have to put up traffic cones to block the rode. But they ran out of them and have to run across the street to get some more. One traffic cone has a slant height of 11.4 inches and a height of 7 inches. To help out the police and make sure they grab the right size, find the radius and volume of one traffic cone.

Each golf ball is filled with different materials which allow it to generate spin and check up on the greens when hit by a golf club. For a science fair, a boy slices golf balls exactly in half in order to determine which brand travels the farthest distance and generates the most spin. The boy measures the golf ball, finding that the diameter is 3.8cm. Find the volume of the sliced- in- half golf ball.
