  • Diameter to meters squared

    A vat of toluene gasoline 12 feet in diameter, determine the surface area of that pool in meters squared.

    I have looked this up online everywhere and cannot find the formula for this problem.

    area = Pi * radius * radius

    But you will need to convert feet to meters first.
    12 feet / 2 = 6 feet radius
    6 feet = 1.8288 meters

    Pi * 1.8288 meters * 1.8288 meters = 10.51 square meters

    We have a calculator for that here:
