Solution

## Finding the height of the vessel:We have:Length of the cuboidal vessel, $l=10m$Width of cuboidal vessel,$b=8m$Volume of cuboidal vessel,$V=380{m}^{3}$Let height be,$h$We know that Formula for volume of cuboid$=l×b×h$ $\begin{array}{rcl}10×8×h& =& 380\\ 80xh& =& 380\\ h& =& 4.75m\end{array}$Therefore, the height of the vessel is$4.75m$.
