The Problem

Five inches of heavy wet snow are equivalent to an inch of rain. Estimate the water content in 17 inches of heavy wet snow.

Answer provided by our tutors

Five inches of heavy wet snow = 1 inch rain

1 inch of heavy wet snow = 1/5 inch rain

 

Therefore;

17 inch heavy wet snow = 1/5*17inch = 3.4 inch

 

So we will have 3.4 inch of rain water content in 17 inch heavt wet snow.
