Two third part of cylinder is full of water. When we tilt the cylinder in such a way that the water becomes diagonal shape, in this process 87.5 litre of water is flown out. Find the capacity of cylinder? answer: 525 litres

If water will become in diagonal shape then it will be exactly half in total

So let total capacity of cylinder be x 

so 2/3x - 1/2x = 87.5 L

x/6  = 87.5

x = 87.5*6 =525 L
