V= piR^2h

5*.5^2 --> 5/4 --> 1.25 cubic feet.

Thus 200+ 200/4 --> 250kg.

Volume of cylinder $$V = (pi)r^2h$$
Calculation yields $$V = (5/4)(pi)$$
Sand being used $$S = (5/4) X (pi) X 200 = 5 X 3.14 X 200 = 250(pi) kg$$

Volume Of Cylinder = pi* 0.5^2 * 5 = 1.25 pi
Sand Required @ 200 per cu ft = 1.25 * 200 * pi = 250 pi

Pi * (1/4) * 5 * 200 kgs = 250*(pi) Kgs
