Question

Water is a precious resource and it should be

conserved. Any leaking water tap should be immediately

repaired. An average drop of water is about 0.2ml. If 3

drops of water go waste per second, calculate the water

wasted in 1 week. Express it in litres. Have you noticed a

considerable amount of water ? A tanker can hold this

considerable amount of water when it is one quarter

empty. Find the capacity of the tanker in litres.

Given:–Solution:–given that,

→ 1 drop of water is about = 0.2ml

and,→ in one second water goes to waste = 3 drop.

So,→0.6ml.Now, we know that ,

Than,→ Total seconds in 1 week = (7 * 24 * 60 * 60) =

604,800seconds.Therefore,→ water goes to waste in 1 week = (0.6) * (604,800) =

362,880ml.Now, we know that ,

So,→→ 1 ml = (1/1000) litre.

→ 362,880 ml = (1 * 362880)/1000 =

362.88Litre.(Ans.)Hence,362.88Litreofwaterwastein1week.## _______

Now, given that, A tanker can hold this considerable amount of water when it is one quarter empty .So,→ One quarter = (1/4) empty.

Than,→ Tank is full by = 1 – (1/4) = (3/4) th .

Therefore,→ (3/4) is equal to = 362.88 litre .

→ 1 is equal to = (362.88 * 4) / 3 =

483.84Litre.(Ans.)Hence,the capacity of the tankeris483.84Litres.
