Hey jespl1.
Which length are you referring to? Are you talking about the height of the cylinder with respect to the volume given that particular height?
Hello (I hope this is the right forum topic for this question)
I am having some difficulty trying to calculate the length per unit volume for a cylinder.
I know the radius of the cylinder. I also know the volume fraction of the cylinder.
I need to calculate the length per unit (total) volume of the cylinders, which is a way to describe the density of cylinders.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
The length per unit volume refers to the length of the cylinders with respect to the entire sample volume. Think of a collection of cylindrical objects floating in some water. All the cylinders have the same radius and there is a certain fraction of the overall volume occupied by the cylinders. I think I have figured this out though. The length per unit volume = the volume fraction/(pie x radius^2) (sorry I don't know how to use mathematical symbols etc>)
