    A couple of problems, radius and segment


    Aijaa.com - 5653302.png

    The first problem is a barrel, whose volume is the only thing I know about it and I gotta solve it's measurements. There is a tip that it is a square when looked far from the side of the barrel (both height and width are the same). I have no clue about this one..

    The second is a long swimming pool and I need to calculate the volume of the water in the pool, although my drawing skills aren't the greatest, I try my best, so: the pool is 4,8 metres long, it's the size of a half circle and it's radius (r) is 0,18m and diameter is 0,36m. So I need to calculate a segment of the circle first but I don't know how to do that, so please help me?

    Thank you in advance, and this time I read the description twice so I didn't miss anything relevant And also a 7 hour deadline on this :X

    EDIT: The asnwers are as following: Problem one's measurements are 6,8m x 6,8m and the pool's volume is 96 liters, I just need to know how to get those results..

    The barrel, then, is a cylinder having h equal to diameter or twice the radius. Since the volume of a cylinder is \pi r^2 h, the volume of this cylinder is \pi r^2 (2r)= 2\pi r^3.

    The second is a long swimming pool and I need to calculate the volume of the water in the pool, although my drawing skills aren't the greatest, I try my best, so: the pool is 4,8 metres long, it's the size of a half circle and it's radius (r) is 0,18m and diameter is 0,36m.

    What do you mean by "its size is a half circle"? What is its shape? If a half circle, what measurement of the circle is its length od 4,8 m.?
