# Thread: Volume of a Wine Glass

1. ## Volume of a Wine Glass

Design a wine glass that may have a flat base, solid stem and curved shape defined by the function y = Square root of x. The glass must hold 100mL.

set the dimensions of the glass and confirm that it will hold 100ml.

Use calculus to calculate the volume of the glass itself if it has to be 2mm thick.

Just wondering if anyone could help me with this problem!! I am a bit stuck and the paper is due in a few days!

This question emerges here seemingly every year.

Hi, thanks that helped for the first part but i'm still stuck on how to find the volume of the glass itself if it has to be 2mm thick? Do I multiply the function F(x) by 0.2?
