Wikipedia tells us that the surface area of Prince Edward Island is 5,660 km2.
The square root of 5,660 is 75.23, meaning that, if reconfigured to be a square, PEI would be 75.23 km by 75.23 km.
NASA tells us that “freshly-fallen snow has a density of 50 kg/m3.”
One centimeter of freshly-fallen snow on a 75.23 km by 75.23 km box is a cube that’s 7,523,000 cm by 7,523,000 cm by 1 cm.
That’s a cube that’s 56,595,529,000,000 cm3 or 56,595,529 m3.
At 50 kg/m3 that means that a one centimeter snowfall on Prince Edward Island has a mass of 2,829,776,450 kg, which is 2,829,776.45 metric tons.
So an 86 cm fall of snow has a mass of 226,382,116 metric tons.
Dump trucks vary, but it seems their capacity is around 32 metric tons, so that’s about 7 million dump trucks worth of snow.
Is my math correct?
