At a pick-your-own orchard, the wooden baskets for picking peaches can be modeled by a cylindrical prism that is inches high and inches in diameter. Jenna and Thomas fill a basket with peaches.

  1. What is the density of peaches?

  2. Thomas sees produce trucks being loaded at the orchard and starts wondering. What is the density of peaches per cubic foot?

    Convert the answer in (a) to peaches/ft3.

  3. By looking at the height of the truck driver compared to the truck, Thomas estimates that the produce is loaded into a space that is feet long by feet wide by feet tall. How many peaches does Thomas estimate the truck can hold?

    What is the volume of the truck?
