7.48 is the amount of water mass you can fit into a square foot. You can fit 7.48 gallons into a one foot high, one foot wide, and one foot long. And to solve it he figured the volume of the pool in cubic feet, he then by personal knowledge or google he figured 7.48 gallons of water can fit into a square with 1 foot mesurements, lastly he simply multiplied his original number of cubic feet by 7.48 to receive his awnser. Hope I put that in terms you can understand, I don't know what you get taught in American school at what age, but we learned to do that in 5th grade.
7.48 gallons per CUBIC foot of area. It was just a volume calculation. Here's some more info for ya: What if the pool was round? Lets say 34ft across and 12 ft deep then do it this way: .785 x 34 x 34 x 12 = 10,890 cu. ft. x 7.48 = 81,457 gallons. Now I don't carry out all the #'s after the last decimal on the calculator, I just round them up or down which is a standard practice with these calculations.
The answer is 140,385 gallons and here is how to figure it: 46x34x12=18,768 cubic feet of area x 7.48 gallons per cubic foot = 140,385 gallons of water.
call the # on the swimming poor or on the instruction guide and tell the the width and length and ft and they will tell u:)
where did u get 7.48? i just wantedd to know how u solved it so i can c how much gal. is my bro's swimming pool
Lol my pool doesn't have an instruction guide or number, it's over 25 years old :p thank you though.
Also, the water will weigh about 1,171,000 pounds because a gallon weighs 8.34 pounds.
2,000 ..not to sure mine is 46 ft..not sure about the rest but it says 2,00 gal.
The awnser with a 24 ft width would actually be 136,046.24 gallons of water.
thanks!!! i learned this in HS. but forgot..no good n math:)
I promise this is correct. I know what I'm talking about.
Answer * Lol grammar fail.
Noooo 2,000 is wayyyy offf
*24 in width
