We had this as a seatwork..couldn't answer it. My classmates answered it but I am doubtful about their answers I'll explain later

1. Given right circular cylinder circumscribed about the regular hexagonal pyramid with base a regular hexagon of side S= 6m, height of cylinder 10m

compute:

a. area of the base of the cylinder

b. lateral surface area of the cylinder

c. total surface area of the cylinder

d. area of the base of the pyramid

e. surface area if the pyramid

f. total area of the pyramid

basically it says we have a hexagonal pyramid (pyramid with a hexagon for it's base, my classmates just used S for radius r...and I'm very sure that's wrong...unless someone explains to me how did S = r,)

I know everything else to solve this but...I need to know:

a. how to solve for the area of a hexagon? (or for any other polygon for future reference since our instructor said we'd be facing more problems like this)

b. how do I derive the radius r from the sides S = 6?

2.Given: Oblique circular cylinder with base circumscribed about the square of a side 10cm, edge 20cm inclined at 45 degrees

compute

a. area of the base of the cylinder

b. lateral surface area of the cylinder

c. total surface area if the cylinder

d. surface area of prism

e. total area of prism

similar to 1st question but instead of a hexagon we get a prism, and it is inclined at a 45 degree angle. I can calculate for the height which is

h= 20cos 45 degrees = 14.14cm (I think?)

Off topic...engineering day in the Philippines in September 13 right?
