The formula for the volume of a cylinder ("circular basin") is V=[pi]*r2*h, where r is the radius and h is the height ("depth") of the cylinder. Since the volume is provided in gallons and the diameter will be expressed in feet, it is first necessary to convert the gallon amount to cubic feet. There are about 7.481 gallons in a cubic foot, so the conversion is done by dividing 147,000 by 7.481, yielding an answer of 19,649.779 cubic feet. The formula may now be expressed as: 19,649.779 cu. ft. = 3.141*r2*10 ft. Solving for r yields a value of approximately 25.012 ft. Diameter is twice the radius, so approximately 50 ft. Check the answer: V=3.141*25.012 ft.2*10 ft. V=19,650.1 cu. ft. * 7.481 = 147,002 gallons (allowing for rounding)

In the King James version the word - basin - does not appear at all. the word - circular - does not appear at all. and, although the word - bowl - appears 17 times, it is never described as circular, nor even round. However, pottery basins and bowls are always round - even in biblical times.

Lake Superior's basin was formed over one billion years ago by tectonic forces. Lava escaped around the edges of a large caldera or plateau, causing it to collapse and form a basin that solidified over time. This "Superior Basin" was then later filled with water during the glacial periods which filled the basin when the glaciers retreated northwards.

In theory - forever. In practice it will depend on many factors: friction coefficient, mass of object, radius of basin, initial conditions.
