###### 11/20/2014

To calculate the volume of water in a semicircular trough, one should figure out the area of the cross section (the semicircle) first. Then, this number should be multiplied by the length of the trough.

### What is the formula for finding the volume of a regular liquid?

In order to find the volume of a liquid you first need to know
its mass and density. You can then use the formula: volume = mass /
density. For instance, if you have 2 kg of water, you can find out
the volume that the water occupies. Water have a density of around
1kg/liter. We then use the mass/density formula:
Volume = mass / density = 2 kg/(1 kg/liter) = 2
liter.
We have now calculated that 2 kg of water...

### Could you give me an example of independent variable?

something like time. Like say you want to work out how much
water will be in a trough that has water coming in at 2 L per
minute - the amount of water in the trough is dependent on the time
at which you are trying to calculate the volume of water. so in
this case time is an independent variable and the amount of water
is the dependent variable... hope that helps. :)

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Geometry

### What is the formula in finding the volume of irregular solid?

There is no formula for finding the volume of an irregular
solid. One method is water displacement which works as follows:
Fill a graduated container with water and read off the volume of
water. Then you submerge the irregular shaped solid in the water
and measure the volume inside the container again. The difference
between the two levels is the volume of the solid.
This clearly cannot work for solids that are soluble in water.
Other fluids may have to be used...
