Estimating errors in measuring volume of small balls in large container

Consider an experimental procedure to measure the average volume of M&M Peanut candies. One hundred piece of the candy are poured into a graduated cylinder with a 30 diameter. The cylinder is then filled with 1 mm diameter beads and shaken so that the beads and candies pack as tightly as possible. Finally, the candies are remove

Plucker Coordinates

1. Let d = (1, 2, -2), m = (-8, 5, 1) (a) Check that d and m are orthogonal. I already check that it is orthogonal. DO NOT ANSWER THIS PART. (b) Find a vector v such that d x v = m. In other words, find an affine point on the line with Plucker coordinates (1, 2, -2, -8, 5, 1). 2. Describe a general way

Weightage Method

Four cities plan to build a new airport to serve all four communities. City B (population 180,000) is 4 miles north and 3 miles west of city A (population 75,000). City C (population 240,000) is 6 miles east and 12 miles south of city A. City D (population 105,000) is 15 miles due south of city A. Find the best location for the

Value of x, volume of a cylinder

1) Using the graph, what is the value of x that will produce the maximum volume? 2) The volume of a cylinder (think about the volume of a can) is given by V = πr2h where r is the radius of the cylinder and h is the height of the cylinder. Suppose the volume of the can is 121 cubic centimeters. Write h as a function

Maximizing the Volume of an Open-Top Box

An open top box is to be constructed from a 6 by 8 foot rectangular cardboard by cutting out equal squares at each corner and then folding up the flaps. Let x denote the length of each side of the square to be cut out. Find the function V that represents the volume of the box in terms of x. Show and explain the answer, and a

Unit square

Is it possible to partition a unit square [0, 1] X [0, 1] into two disjoint connected subsets A and B such that A and B contain opposing corners? I.e., such that A contains (0, 0) and (1, 1), and B contains (1, 0) and (0, 1)? *----0 | | | | 0----* Evidently, A and B couldn't be path-connected because a path running fr
