From recent discussions in the thread [url]https://forum.atlas-games.com/t/card-board-games-archive-links/116/1] about the Form of Aquam, I thought I'd make some calculations about what the colourful descriptions like "a pool 5 paces (15 feet) across and 2 paces deep at the centre".
All my calculations will be in metric, but I'll use conversions with more precision than my usual quick-and-dirty method, plus I'll use Pi on a scientific calculator rather than just "3" like when calculation in my head.
I also assume the pool has a sloping bottom, so I calculate volume as a cylinder with half the given depth as the average height of the object, that should be close enough.
So, a pace is apparently 1 yard since 5 paces is 15 feet.
Water: "a pool 5 paces (15 feet) across and 2 paces deep at the center" is 15012 liters
Naturally occurring liquids (fruit juice, olive oil by examples) is 1/10th that of water, so 1501 liters, or "2 paces across, 1 pace deep at the center" giving 1200 liters, numbers are a little off here
Processed liquids (e.g. beer, wine) is 1/100th that of water, so 150 liters, or "a pool 1 pace across, half a pace deep at the center" giving 150 liters
Corrosive or dangerous liquids is 1/1000th that of water, so 15 liters, or " a pool a foot across and six inches deep at the center" giving 5,6 liters, numbers are off here, If calculated without a sloping bottom, so the height of cylinder is 6 inches I get 11 liters.
Poisons is "a single dose"
Anyway, that's the number I get, which should be close enough for Mythic Europe
