An Olympic Sized Pool and Jet Fuel
Students will find the information to calculate how many times we could fill up a jet plane using the fuel that would fit in an olympic-sized pool.
Interestingly, there is no "official" volume of an olympic-sized pool! Students have to make a choice – how deep will their pool be. Likewise, they'll need to choose their own jet plane and find out the volume of its fuel tank.
Inspired by Stupid Calculations.
- First, students will need to figure out how much water is in an olympic-sized pool, pick a plane, and determine much fuel that plane can hold.
- I'll reveal how many times I could fill up my jet plane.
