24.0 cubic inches 2.0 cubic inches

Work Step by Step

Using the information from the picture, we see that r=1.2 and h=5.3 Plugging these numbers into the formula for the Volume ($\pi r^{2}h$), we get $3.14\times1.2^{2}\times5.3 = 23.964$. Since the question asks us to round to the nearest tenth, we round up to 24.0 cubic inches. Since the can we just found the volume of says it is 12 ounces, we can figure out approximately how much 1 fluid ounce is by dividing the can's volume by 12. Volume = 24.0/12 = 2.0 cubic inches.
