ok so you have a hot water cylinder with a radius of 20cm and a height of 120cm, what is the volume of the cylinder in cubic centimetres using the formulas pi R2h
and pi being 3 not the 3.14.
????

pi is 3.142 or to be pricise 3.14159265 so when i said 3.142 that was pi rounded to 3 decimal places.

pi is neither 3 not 3.14 but, if you must...Volume of a cylinder is the area times the height. Area is pi times the square of the radius.So volume = 3 x (20 x 20) x 120 = 3 x 400 x 120 = 144,000cm^3

one cubic centimetre of water weighs 0.001kg. so when the cylinder is full what will the water weigh in KG's.

Depends. 1ml of water only weighs one gramme at 4 degrees Celcius. This is a hot water tank, so the water will have expanded and have a lower overall density.

So we need to know the temperature of the water in the tank and also whether the volume of the tank is measured when cold or hot.

Actually, no. STP is either 0C or 20C and the water wouldn't weigh 144kg at either of those.

In fact, there are many definitions of STP but none of them involve 4 Celcius.

Quite so, but since you and the original poster are using mass and weight as synonymous and the OP is taking Pi as 3, 144 is a good enough approximation.

yeah just a question we set in a quiz, did not think of the temperture coming into effect, lets hope we dont get some clever person answering lol.
well done any ways.

3x400x120

144,000 cm3 (cubed)

Can you seriously not work this out yourself???
