-Hint: height of the small bucket is 15 ( I already calculated it properly, don't double check)
The question is:
b) given that the small bucket has a volume of 850 cm^3, find the volume of the large bucket
I tried solving it, and I got the final answer 6816 cm^3, is that right or not? thx in advance
The deminsions are 2 times the smaller bucket.
Volume is 3 deminsions, so 850 * 2 * 2.
pi r^2 h = 850 cm^3
now make dimensions larger
pi ( 2r)^2 2h = ?
(8) pi r^2 h = larger bucket
(8) (850) = 6800 cm3
why did you assume it's a cylinder?
now im confused cuz we 3 got different answers.
I think you will have to be given more information if you assume it is a conic section or other....
but volume is basically a 3 dimensional construct l x w x h or area x h
you increased the base area x4 and you increased the height by a factor of two
4 x 2 = 8 times the original volume (without assuming a cylinder)
