What's the depth or height of the 3ft x 3ft square? And what type of gallon are you wanting?


Edit: You listed a two-D shape. But are asking for a 3-D result.


Re-Edit: Just saw where you listed "...an inch of rain".

3x3 is 9 sf at 1" deep.
1 cubic ft = 7.48 gallons divided by 12 is .06233 x9 =5.61 gallons
And the reason you are asking is because you have a weird shaped bath tub and you don't want your wife using too much hot water when she bathes.

If a flying squirrel lands on my cat’s back when the ambient temperature is above 95, what color does the rooster sound like?

That is good to know, besides I think that would be a displacement math question.
KingFisher is a good name, was my CB handle for many years back in the day.

Was it humped until it peed first or just regular?

Really simple length x width times height all in inches and then divide by 231 girls you gallons. Common in fish tanks.

convert everything to inches, then 36" x 36" x 0.0043290043290035(gal per cu. in.) = 5.61
