Does that mean 29,922 gallons is wrong?

Thanks

Ho ho ho, I'd confuse anyone!..

Thanks for all your help. Very much appreciated.

But,

What is the difference betyween "area" and "volume"...Do they not mean the same thing?

I am sincere in this question. It means a lot because a lot depends on it.

Thanks

You aren't kidding, are you?

I'll try to explain the difference by an example.

Go into your livingroom:

The floor, the walls and the ceiling are areas.

The air in the livingroom is the content of the volume of this room.

(If area and volume is the same and you try to glue the air to the wall as a wallpaper you'll be visited by two friendly men, clad in a white uniform, who will show you the way to ... well, don't do that :D)

In other words:

**distance**is an one-dimensional object; units inch, foot, cm, km, mile, etc

**area**is a two-dimensional object; units square-inch, square-foot, square-cm, ...

**volume**is a three-dimensional object; units cube-inch, cube-foot, cube-cm, ...
