How many cups is in 16.9 fl oz?

Just divide by 8, there are 8 oz in every cup. So to answer your question it is 2.1125 3 cups 1oz.

About 2 cups. 8 oz is 1 cup, and 8 + 8 would equal 16...so, I'd figure about 2.

If you were to get 8 cups of water a day, you would have to drink 4 16.9 oz water bottles, if that's what you're referring to.

How many square feet will a yard of concrete cover at 4 inches thick?

Assuming you are talking about a cubic yard of concrete then this will cover 81 square feet to a depth of 4 inches. This is how you work it out. A yard is 3 feet. so a square yard (3 feet by 3 feet) is 9 square feet. There are also 12 inches in a foot and 3 feet in a yard, which makes the cubic yard of concrete 36 inches high.

Thus imagine you take your cubic yard of concrete and place it down once and saw of 4 inches from the base this will leave square 3 feet by 3 feet square feet of concrete with a depth of 4 inches when you lift the top bit off.

So you need to know how many times you can place it down and cut off 4 inches. As the block is 36 inches high and 4 goes into 36 nine times this means you can cut the block into 9, 4 inch thick, 3 foot by 3 foot square slabs, which is the same as 81 square feet.

Why does literature exist?

Why does Literature exist?

I would love to start by citing two antiquities that sought to unravel the birth of Literature: Plato and Aristotle.

Plato said that idea is the ultimate reality. He would say that art is bad for the reason that it takes away twice the reality of life. This is based from the theory called Mimesis that art is an illusion of reality and of the truth.

Aristotle deliberately defended his own beliefs and teachings as opposed to his mentor, Plato. He argued that art is not an illusion of reality but rather a vector to better understand life and its meanings. An artist might imitate a table crafted by a carpenter as a product of human idea but an artist may put symbols and meanings that are absent in the real world. Art is not an imitation but rather a reflection of an artist's creative idea ought to touch us and open our hearts to appreciate the real world.

Now, let me give my definition of Literature.

It is an art.

It is a story of every man's life.

It must be a vehicle in telling the truth.

It is Life itself.

Again, why does Literature exist?

It exists because of us. Literature can not continue its role in the world without its advocates. Literature can not be opened without a rational being. It existed because of us. Legends, tales, poetry and etc., it is all human initiative. Consequently, Literature was born in the same time humanity was born as well.

Remember that we die twice. First is when the soul departs from the body and second is when the last person in the world stops mentioning or remembering our name; only by then, we will long be forever forgotten and death came to us.

Air Pollution

How does acid rains affect things on earth?

Acid rain is very harmful to the environment. Acid rain damages everything over a period of time because it makes the living things in the environment die. Acid rain affects the life in the water as well as the life on land. It is almost worse in water than on land because the fish that are in the water need the water to breathe. When the water gets polluted, then the fish get sick and end up dying.

All rainwater contains some level of acidity. Acidity is measured by pH, which stands for potential of hydrogen. The pH scale measures the amount of acid in a substance. PH is measured on a scale from 0-14, with 7 being neutral. The lower the number is on the pH scale, the more acidic that substance is. Normal rainwater has a pH of 5.6. When the pH level of rainwater goes below 5.6, it is considered acid rain.

Robin Hood

Who is robin hood's mom and dad?

In the story Robin Hood, Robin is grown already, a man on his own, and although he is young he has already moved away from home. His parents are not referenced in the story. Sorry!

This depends upon which version you read, as the story that we know as 'Robin Hood' does not come from one singular author. In one version he and his parents lived in Serwood Forest until he became an outlaw, in another he was the son of Lord Locksley.
