Plato wants to melt some of them down to make cylindrical candles with a diameter of 30 centimeters and a height of 26 centimeters. How many of the spherical candles are needed to make one of the cylindrical candles? A. 12.79 B. 27.41 C. 7.93 D. 17.06 Exercise #3
Exercise #4 (Based on a true story) Gomer has been working out by lifting weights. He has been using spherical lead-alloy weights with a radius of 3 inches. Each sphere weighs 20 pounds. Now he wishes to lift 100 pound weights, so he special-orders spherical weights, made of the same material, but with a radius of 15 inches. Why is Gomer in intensive care? Why is Gomer bankrupt?
Exercise #5 www.math.fsu.edu/~wooland/GeoNew/Geo12.html The formula N = 0.06125DV can be used to determine the number (N) of five-pound bags of ice needed to reduce the temperature of a small body of water by D degrees Fahrenheit where V is the volume of water (in cubic feet). Archimedes has a cone-shaped water garden with a radius of 9.5 feet filled to a depth of 17 inches. How many bags of ice are needed to reduce the temperature of the water from 91 degrees to 82 degrees? A. 74 B. 11 C. 886 D. 1205
