US oil production was 10,619,000 barrels per day in the last week of April, the most for any one week. A barrel is 119.24 liters. How much oil was produced per second? Come up with an object with a comparable volume to give your answer context.
I can answer the first question..
10,619,000 barrels are produced every 24 hours (one day). To find out how much was produced in 1 hour, we need to divide.
Lets round the answer to something more usable.
Now we need to divide
Round the answer..
Divide by the number of seconds in a minute.. (60)
Round the answer to get
(someone check if i'm right)
Each barrel is 119.24 litres
An object 3.5 m by 2.1 m by 2 m would have a volume of 14.7
