Dumptrucks of Cocaine in a Submarine!

It all started one day at work, when crazy_train sent my team an email along the lines of this. We were all shocked that drug rings had the power and money to possibly use submarines to haul their goods!

Later that week we were all discussing the submarines again when crazy_train conjectured that it was 200 tons of cocaine found on the submarine he read about. We all immidiately jumped on him saying that was impossible! Arguments ensued as we all attempted to visualize how much cocaine 200 tons really would be like.

cocaine


Someone, I believe it was Bendersalt, said that you could probably fit 200 tons of cocaine into several hundred dumptrucks, and that there was absolutely no way you could fit hundreds of dumptrucks onto a submarine! What an absurd notion indeed!

Eventually we all came to concensus that 200 tons was far too much cocaine to fit on one submarine. Since we are all programmers we decided to guesstimate exactly how many dumptrucks of cocaine COULD fit into these submarines. I don't remember what answer we came up with at the time, but I do know a pretty darn good answer now!

Dump Truck


This is a standard dump truck. It has a payload of approximately 16 cubic yards.

Submarine


This is a virginia class submarine, perhaps not the kind a Russian drug dealer would use, but it sure is awesome! It's length is 377 feet, with a diameter of 34 feet. For those of us who don't necessarily know, the volume of a "cylinder" is as follows:
V = pi * (radius^2) * height
From this information you should be able to figure out approximately how many standard dump truck payloads will fit into a virgina class submarine.

You really have to look out for those whales while smuggling via submarines. Big noses. Sniff alot of coke... Ok, I'm done...

You are right buymoreguns, thanks for pointing that out. I fail at life for that simple mistake.

Submarines DO look like turds.... with little turds shooting out of them. So the answer to the question should be very simple... How much cocain will fit in to the volume of a turd? Turd - awesome or stupid?

how do you know what submarines where used in the drug smuggling??hmmmm?? are you part of their little crew? do you snort it up? are popping willies? flap jacks? flippy stingers?

Comment by: crazy_train -- Date: 2007-11-20 09:22:58

The Volume of a cylinder is not as stated above you douche

Comment by: buymoreguns -- Date: 2007-11-19 14:31:17

First off the Russian drug submarines were only like 50 feet long. Second, how much volume is a ton of cocaine anyway?

Comment by: chazinomaha -- Date: 2007-11-19 12:57:09

based on my information, and if my calculations are correct...this proves that i was right, and 200 tons could fit in a submarine...muwhahahhaa

submarines look like turds.

They might complain even more, now that we have forced them to do math if they want to know the answer!

Comment by: chazinomaha -- Date: 2007-11-17 21:50:03

Now you can all stop whining about that quiz question! Hooray!
