Q:
# The amount of water that evaporation from a lake in 1 day was about 70 acre feet . which amount is closest to the rate of evaporation per hour

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:2.9167 acre-feet β 3 acre-feet per hourStep-by-step explanation:Data provided:The amount of evaporation from a lake in 1 day = 70 acre-feetalso, 1 day = 24 hoursTherefore, the rate of evaporation per hour = [tex]\frac{\textup{Amount of evaporation}}{\textup{Total time}}[/tex]
orthe rate of evaporation per hour = [tex]\frac{\textup{70 acre-feet}}{\textup{24}}[/tex]
orthe rate of evaporation per hour = 2.9167 acre-feet β 3 acre-feetHence,The evaporation rate per hour is closest to 3 acre-feet per hour
