Question #611

A supertanker spilled a total of 198666 barrels of oil. How many liters would this be? Given 1 barrel = 42.0 gal; 1 gal = 4 quarts and 1 quart = 9.46x10-4 m3?

Expert's answer

198666 barrels = 42.0 x 198666 = 8343972 gal;

8343972 gal = 4 x 8343972 = 33375888 quarts;

33375888 quarts = 0.946x10-3 x 33375888 = 31573590.048x10-3 = 31573590.048 liters.

8343972 gal = 4 x 8343972 = 33375888 quarts;

33375888 quarts = 0.946x10-3 x 33375888 = 31573590.048x10-3 = 31573590.048 liters.
