soo the question is: there is a volume of 750cm^3 of molten metal available, find the minimum dimensions to create a cylinder.
it sounds quite vague from looking at it. ive tried using both the volume and total surface area formulas for a cylinder which are:
V=πr²h and TSA=2πr²+2πrh
soo substituting 750 as V you would get: 750=πr²h and rearranging that you could get either: h=750/πr² or r=√(750/πh) and substitute those to the TSA formula.
From there i was able to differentiate both functions i got from substituing but couldnt find any maximum or minimum values as i kept getting hyperbola functions and what not.
can someone please find r and h? thanks in advance
