Unformatted text preview: llons to liters and liters to cubic meters. Our conversion factors are: 3.786 L 1 gal and 10 3 m 3 1 L . L m3 It follows that rate 7.14 10 2 gal s 3.786 10 3 2.70 10 4 m3 s gal L (c) This question relates rate and time to the volume filled as well as convert from hours to seconds. The relation is 1 hr 60 min 3600 s . Then since rate is volume over time, volume is the product of rate and time. And time is rate over volume. Symbolically: r V t , V r t , and t V r . Using the last relationship we can arrive at the desired result: 1 m3 hr s t 1.03 hr 4 3 2.7 10 m s 3600 Please note the use of three significant figures throughout this problem. ¨  © © ¦    ¥¦ ¨ ¦  ¥         ...
