A Short Course in Cloud Physics p80

Please show a step by step solution. and please do not provide solution that is already posted in chug archive because it is not correct!

5.2. An airplane flies through an isolated cumulus cloud to make microphysical measurements with a raindrop spectrometer probe having a cross-sectional area of 20 cm^2. The cruising speed is 80 m/s and a horizontal traverse through the cloud core takes about 2 min. Assume that the cloud shape can be roughly approximated by a cylinder having a depth of 4 km. Under these assumptions, compute the fraction of the cloud volume that is actually sampled during a traverse.
