A pipe is supported by a block and a wall.Find the pipe radius in terms of the block height and its distance from the wall.
A block with height "b" is placed a distance "a" from a wall, to hold in place a pipe with radius "R" (the pipe is supported by the wall on the other side - see attached figure). Find the radius "R" in terms of "a" and "b".
Geometricrelations are used to find the radius of a pipe in terms of the block height and its distance from the wall. The solution contains a diagram and is well presented.
