"cos\\frac{1}{2}\u03b8=0.5\/2.5"


"\u03b8=156.926^\u2218 "

"\u03b1=360^\u2218\u2212\u03b8=360^\u2218\u2212156.926^\u2218"


"\u03b1=203.074^\u2218"

Area of cross section:

"A_b=1\/2r^2(\u03b1_{rad}+sin\u03b8_{deg})\n"

"A_b=12.3 ft^2 "

Volume of water:


"V_w=A_bL=12.3(8)"

"V_w=98.4"


Depth of water in vertical position:


"Vw=\u03c0r^2h"

"98.4=\u03c0(2.5^2)h \n"


"h=5.01\\space ft \\space\\space answer"
