What is the thickness of one quart of liquid (57.75 cubic inches) poured onto an area of 36x18 inches?




Unsolvable, need the amount of liquid.

I think you're missing some of the problem there bud

Need a volume for the liquid to solve.



Pi(e).



87

I have a math problem too.
How tall is that building? Please specify in inches. Thanks

It was only that once... i was young, and she was persuasive.

87.

Not as thick as your skull. 


Anhydrous ethanol has a specific density of .79.
Hope this helps.

One quart.
Damnit. 


I've been awake too long, so this may not be correct but I came up with 0.08912 inches thick as one quart is 57.75 cubic inches, spread over an area of 648 square inches

Yeah, assuming that the borders of the area are going to contain the liquid, this is the number I got too, and I'm a kolidge ejikated enginear... 


0.08912037037037037037037037037037 inches or 89 thousanths 57.75 cubic inches/(36x18 inches) I checked with my wife, she's a math teacher... 


Simple division didn't seem right for some reason. Seems like it'd be thicker too...



V = l*w*h
57.75 cubic inches = 36 in. * 18 in. * ? ? = .089 inch, like has been shown by a few people already it's reasonable that it would barely cover the surface of a shape a yard by half a yard. It's just a quart.

A good way of checking your work is through cancelling units. 57.75 cubic inches (inch x Gives thickness of 0.08912 inches. And if the units don't cancel out, it means you did something wrong. Hope this helps. 


Zanka all. Especially given my earlier drinkinduced retardation.



57.75/36/18 = 0.0891 inches 

SYSTEM MESSAGE: tard limit exceeded on both sides.

Where did I put my glasses?

when I was in college one of the tests involved solving for lift distribution across a wing. There was a lot of matrix math (before personal computers, so we had to do matrices by hand). One girl in our class solved a 16x16 matrix BY HAND (sixteen simultaneous linear equations), and wrote a final answer with 12 decimal places.
The instructor circled the last number in this long decimal string, and noted "error", and took a point off. We were all engineering students, and nobody was getting laid, so this is what passed for humor.

Surface Tension of the liquid?
