Answer: Depending on the route you take, Boston University is located about 5 miles from Boston College. If you were to take the Commonwealth Ave, the drive would be 5.5 miles, or 14 minutes depending on traffic. If you were to take the Kenrick St route, it would still take you around 14 minutes, but the mileage would be only 5 miles.
Answer: First the answer should be in meters so it is helpful to convert all the feet measurements into meters. 24 ft = 7.315 m 5 ft = 1.524 m
The way I read the question is that 24 ft (7.315 m) is the circumference of the pool. From this I make the assumption that the pool is a round pool. Thus we can model it as a cylinder. The formula for the volume of a cylinder is:
V = PI * r * r * h
Which means you take the math constant PI (approx. 3.14) multiply it by the radius of the circular face and again multiply it by the radius then multiply it by the height (or depth in the question).
The formula to find the circumference is:
C = 2 * PI * r
To get the radius from the circumference just divide the circumference by (2 * PI).
Answer: The swimming pool is a cylinder, so you use the volume equation for a cylinder: V=pi times r2 times height. If the diameter is 12 feet, the radius is 6. V=pi times 62 times 60 V = 2160pi, or 6785.84 ft3
Answer: The quantity required is 50 cubic yards of material. Your supplier will know the number of "truck loads" required based on the carry capacity of his fleet..For example ,if his trucks average 10 cubic yards per load, then you will require a minimum of 5 loads.Also you will need to allow for settlement/compaction of the material which may require 10 to 20% extra depending on the grade of the material. !!
