In a cuboid shaped vessel, 2 liters of water were poured. Its base is a square with a side length of cm. Find the height of the water in the vessel.
Step 1: Convert the units for the amount of water to cubic centimetres.
is equivalent to , to multiply the number of litres by to convert to cubic centimetres.
Step 2: Find the height of the water.
Since the volume of a cuboid can be found by multiplying the height by the base area, we can find the height of the water by dividing the water's volume by the vessel's base area.
