Hi,
Can some one show me a method for calculating the volume of the soil heap on the attachment.
Thanks....
1. I assume that the heap is divided into equidistant slices.
2. Each slice is nearly(!) a frustum of a pyramid (see here: Frustum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
3. The ends of the heap can be considered as pyramids .
4. You'll get a result which will be a little bit too small because with my method you'll disregard the rounded shape of the heap.
