Help with Back of the envelope calculations Units and dimensions… Mineral Nutrition Davis rainfall is 19.6 inches (per year) 19.6 inches * 25.4 mm inch -1 = 498 mm That is a depth i.e. if the rainfall fell into a cylinder it would be 498 mm deep So how much is that per m 2 ? 1m 2 is a surface area, 498mm is a depth…multiply the two together and you get a volume
Help with Back of the envelope calculations Units and dimensions… Mineral Nutrition Start by using the same units (lets use both mm and m for the illustration): 1m 2 = 1000mmX1000mm Volume=1000mmX1000mmX498mm =498 000 000 mm 3 How many liters is that? 1 liter is 1000ml and 1ml is 1cm 3 and 1cm 3 is 10x10x10mm 1 L = 1000ml X 1cm 3 ml -1 X 1000mm 3 cm -3 1 L = 1000 000 mm 3 Thus L = 498 000 000 mm 3 / 1000 000 mm 3 L -1 or 498 L 498 mm = 0.498m Volume=1 m 2 X 0.498m = 0.498 m 3 How many liters is that? 1m 3 is 100X100X100cm 3 ,1L is 1000ml, 1ml=1cm 3 1m 3 = 1000 000 cm 3 X 1L 1000ml -1 X 1ml 1cm -3 1m 3 = 1000 L Thus L = 0.498m 3 X 1000 L m -3 or 498 L So 1mm of rain is 1L of water falling on 1m 2 using mm using m

How much roof area do I need to gather rainfall (winter) for storage in a tank, so that I can water my garden during summer? Facts: Vegetable garden is 5 by 10 m (= 50m 2 ~500 sqft) Facts: 498mm fall during winter in Davis (= 498L H 2 O m -2 year -1 ) Range of answer: 1 to 1000m 2 of roof Equation? a/A = b/B Need water use of garden (L m -2 year -1 ) Assumption or data: ETo is 5.7 mm day -1 (CIMIS) WU = 5.7 mm day -1 X 182 days (in summer) = 1037 mm season -1 WU (L m -2 year -1 )=1037 L m -2 year -1 (1mm in 1m 2 is = 1L m -2 ) Area roof (m 2 ) = area garden X water lawn used / water stored = 50 X 1037 / 498 = 104m 2 (that’s my entire house area) Would need 51850 L storage tank http://wwwcimis.water.ca.gov/cimis/pdf/etomap1.pdf area roof area garden Winter Summer water stored ET rain area garden X water transpired = area roof X water stored m 2 X L m -2 year -1 = m 2 X L m -2 year -1 http://greenwatersystemsusa.com/gra phics/tanks/2500gallon.html

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
