The Jar: 6.5 litre capacity
Length and width of 1 paper clip: 2 x 0.5 inches
student : this is a homework question i have been stuck on for a while
tutor3 : how many more do you have?
student : just this one
tutor3 : ok
student : can you help me with it
tutor3 : sure.just give me a while actually helping someone
student : ok
tutor3 : look first convert inch to metres to make it to a standard system as litre is given.Thus 2 inches is .05 metres and similarly others.Now take the height of paerclip as 1 inch which is 39.37 metres and then finding the volume of 1 paper clip we have (.012*.05*.25)=.0000125.This is the volume of 1 paper thus number of paper clips in the jar is 6.5/.0000125=426508 (ans)
student : where did you get 1 inch = 39.37
student : hi
tutor3 : no 1 metre is 39.37 inch
student : oh okay
