Maximum Volume of a Right Circular Cylinder

What is the maximum possible volume of a right circular cylinder with a total surface area (including the top and the bottom)?
600 pi in^2

Find the exact coordinates of the inflection points and critical points of the function (Figure 15.1) on the interval (-10, 10)

f(x)= 2x^3+ 3x^2- 180x+ 150

Find dx/dt given


Sketch, the graph of f(x). Identify all extrema, inflection points, intercepts, and asymptotes. Show the concave structure clearly and note any discontinuities.


Solution Summary

The maximum volume of a right circular cylinder is found using derivatives and inflection points. The solution is detailed and well presented.
