# Getting the AREA of an OIL SPILL

How much area in $$m^2$$ will $$200 cm^3$$ of oil cover if it forms a layer of $$35mm$$ thick?

i dont know what formula i will be using, my teacher never discussed this and i cant seem to find any on the internet, thanks.

• $h=0.35$ mm, and no matter what shape the oil takes, as long as its uniform in thickness, we can write $A \cdot h=V$ where $A$ is the area and $V = 200$ cm$^3$ is the volume. You need to be careful with the different units, but I'm sure you've been taught how to work with them – Yuriy S Jul 1 at 8:09
