Does your tent have sloping or vertical sides ?
5m high ? You'r catering for some very tall people !
How much air is enclosed in a tent with a rectangular base 4m by 2.7m
if the height is 5m?
the problem above has an answer from the book that has no solution shown and its answer is 18m^3...
but my answer is 54m^3 since l x w x h = formula of volume
How much air is enclosed in a tent with a rectangular base 4m by 2.7m if the height is 5m?
The book's answer 18 m3.
But my answer is 54m3.
You assumed that the tent is a rectangular "box".
If that were true, they could have described a room with those dimensions.
Why mention a "tent"?
I assumed it was a "traditional" tent shape.
But I got a different answer.Code:* * \ * \ /:\ \ / :5\ * / : \ * * - - - * 4 2.7
The only way that the volume could be 18 m3
. . is if the tent is a pyramid with a rectangular base.
The problem is badly worded.
It should have stated the shape of the tent.
Bad problem! .Bad! .Go to your room!
