A tank measures 53ft long, 30ft wide, and 21ft deep. If 93,000 gallons of water are pumped into the tank, how high will the water level in the tank rise?
53 x 30 = 1590 ft2
7.48 gallons per cubic foot
1590 x 7.48 = 11,893.2 gallons per foot
93000 / 11893.2 = 7.82 feet
It will rise about 8 feet
And to answer the next question after that, pumped to that level an outlet at the bottom of the tank will yield a pressure of approx. 3.39 psi.
1 psi = 2.31 feet water column=
7.82 / 2.31 = 3.385psi
