Unit 6, Lesson 27# Real-World Volume Problems

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use the volume formula for a right prism to solve volume problems involving rate of flow. Students apply their knowledge of volume to real-world contexts, specifically problems involving rate of flow of liquid. These problems are similar to problems involving distance, speed, and time; instead of manipulating the formula 𝑉 = 𝑟𝑡, where 𝑟 is the volumetric flow rate, and develop an understanding of its relationship to 𝑉.
