# To make an open f

Answer :

The fish tank is cuboidal.

Although it is open from the top, it won’t affect our calculations for finding volume of the fish tank.

Outer dimensions:

Length (l’) = 60.4 cm

Breadth (b’) = 40.4 cm

Height (h’) = 40.2 cm

Width of the gauge is width of the tank (w) = 2 mm = 0.2 cm [, 1 mm = 10-1 cm]

2w = 2 × 0.2 = 0.4 cm

Inner dimensions:

Length (l) = l’ – 2w = 60.4 – 0.4 = 60 cm

Breadth (b) = b’ – 2w = 40.4 – 0.4 = 40 cm

Height (h) = h’ – 2w = 40.2 – 0.4 = 39.8 cm

Volume of the cuboidal fish tank is given by,

Volume = lbh

= 60 × 40 × 39.8

= 95520 cm3

Thus, volume of water that the fish tank will contain is 95520 cm3.
