Question

A rectangular field is 70 m long and 60 in broad. A well of dimensions 14m×8m×6m is dug outside the field and the earth dug-out from this well is spread evenly on the field. How much will the earth level rise?


Solution

Length of well (l) = 14 m
Breadth (b) = 8 m
Depth (h) = 6 m
Volume of earth dugout = l×b×h
= 14×8×6=672m3
Length of filed = 70 m
and breadth = 60 m
Let h be the height of earth spread over 
Then 70×60×h=672
 h=67270×60=0.16 m
Height of earth = 0.16 m = 16 cm
