**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Hi,

I really need help with a problem. I have a plate and need to calculate how much soil it can dig.

**2. Relevant equations**

[b]3. The attempt at a solution[/b

I first calculated the volume of the scoop (a square scoop) and after that I’m stuck. Anyone have an idea?

Volume of scoop: 0.009 m3 (I calculated this)

density of soil: 1400 kg/m3

How much soil can it hold?
