Given: The area of the base of a rectangular tank is 6500 cm2.
Volume of water contained in it is 2.6 m3.
We know that Rectangular tank is in the shape of a cuboid.
And also area of the base of a cuboid is given by : l × b (here l and b are length and breadth respectively)
∴ l × b = 6500 cm2 ….1
Volume of a cuboid is given by: l × b × h (here l, b, h are length, breadth, height respectively)
∴ l × b × h = 2.6 m3 = 2.6 × 1000000 cm3 = 2600000 cm3 …2
From —1 and —2
6500 × h = 2600000
h = = 400 cm = m = 4m
∴ h = 4m
That is, depth of water in the tank is 4m
