Hey there. I basically understand the whole method behind these kinds of problems but on one question in particular I am stuck as to how to set up the equation.
There is a solid formed by joining a hemisphere (half a sphere) to each end of a right circular cylinder. The Volume must be 3000 feet. The hemispherical ends cost twice as much as the surface area of the sides. i have to find the dimensions that minimize the cost.
For V i set up the equation v= 4/3(pi)(r^2) + (pi)(r^2)(h)
Is this right? If it is, what variable do i set the equation equal to, h or r?
Finally, can someone explain how to come up with the cost equation?
After that I can take it from there, hopefully. Thanks
