Question #4179

If a tank fills between 5 and 6 millions bottles of water per day for 358 days/year and facility burned 928,226 gallons of diesel fuel in 2007 alone. Calculate the (ml) of diesel used up per bottle, stating any assumptions you make.

Expert's answer

As the tank& fills between 5 and 6 millions bottles of water per day for 358

days/year,

we can calculate the total number of bottles:

5*10^6*358 < N

< 6*10^6*358

We need to find the volume V of diesel used up per

bottle, so:

V = 928,226 / N in gallons and this is 3790*928,226 / N

ml.

So,

3790*928,226 / (6*10^6*358) < V < 3790*928,226 /

(5*10^6*358)

The answer is: 1.64 ml < V < 1.97 ml

days/year,

we can calculate the total number of bottles:

5*10^6*358 < N

< 6*10^6*358

We need to find the volume V of diesel used up per

bottle, so:

V = 928,226 / N in gallons and this is 3790*928,226 / N

ml.

So,

3790*928,226 / (6*10^6*358) < V < 3790*928,226 /

(5*10^6*358)

The answer is: 1.64 ml < V < 1.97 ml
