How many cubic metres of water can safely be stored in the tank? 2010-09-10
From susanna:
This water tank is a perfect sphere with an inner radius of 12 metres. However, they used inferior materials to build the water tank, and the tank can only withstand a water pressure of 185 kiloPascals. Assume the density of water is exactly 1000 kg/m3, gravity is 9.8 metres/s2, and disregard atmospheric pressure. How many cubic metres of water can safely be stored in the tank? Round DOWN to the nearest whole number (since rounding up could be catastrophic in this instance!), and please submit only a number with no other information.
