It's easier to work with the same system of measures but as you used feet as a length measure to obtain a metric measure:
1) Determine ft^3 (cubic feet)
3.5^2 * 3.1415927 * 32 = 392 ft^3
2) Convert ft^3 to liters
1 ft^3 = 28.3168 liters so: 392 ft^3 * 28.3168 = 11,100.19 liters

In (1), the volume equation is set up correctly, but I think an entry error was mde. I get 1231.5 ftÂ³. Following (2) with corrected volume, I get 34872 L.
