1: If the diameter of a right cylindrical can with circular bases is increased by 25%, by what percent should the height be increased in order to double the volume of the original can?

 

2: A steel sphere with a 3-inch radius is made by removing metal from the corners of a cube that has the shortest possible side lengths. How many cubic inches are in the volume of the cube?


Thank you!

For convenience sake...let the original diameter of the can  =2

So....the original radius  = 1

 

So...the original volume is

 

V = pi * (1)^2 * original height

V = pi * original height

original height = V /pi

 

When the original diameter is increased by 25%, so is the original radius...so the new radius is 1.25

And we have that

2V  = pi * (1.25)^2 * new height

[2V ] / pi * (1.25)^2  =  new height

 

So

 

new height

____________   =

original height

 

 

 

[2V] / [ pi *(1.25)^2 ]

_________________      =

   V /pi

 

 

      2V                           pi

__________    *     _________

pi * (1.25)^2                V

 

 

2 / (1.25)^2  =   

 

1.28

 

So....the original height should be increased by [ 1.28  - 1]  =  .28  = 28%    to double the volume

The sphere will be tangent to each face of the cube.....so....the side length of the cube must  be  6 in

 

So....the volume of the cube  is   just

 

 

side^3   =   6^3   =  216 in^3
