    Hello,

    the area in question is a rectangle with the length of 9.5 m and the width of a quarter perimeter of a circle with radius r = 0.8 m.

    Therefore:

    A = 9.5\ m \cdot \frac14 \cdot 2 \cdot \pi \cdot 0.8 \ m \approx 11.94\ m^2
    Thanks from mash

    Re: Curved surface area

    What earboth calculated was the curved surface area of the cylinder, the area of contact with the ends of the cylinder must be added to this.
    To find that area split the circle cross section up into three parts. 1. The area of contact, 2. The right angled triangle shown in the diagram, 3. The remainder of the circle which is 270 degrees around the centre.
    Thanks from mash and earboth

    Hello,

    thanks for pointing out that I forgot to calculate the front and rear part of the cross-sections. But: In this case the complete area of the cross-sections, which have contact to the oil, can be calculated as a half circle minus a half square:

    A_{complete}=  \underbrace{9.5\ m \cdot \frac14 \cdot 2 \cdot \pi \cdot 0.8 \ m }_{\text{curved surface area}}+ \underbrace{\frac12 \cdot \pi \cdot 0.8^2}_{\text{half circle}} - \overbrace{\frac12 \cdot \frac12 \cdot 1.6^2}^{\text{half square,  diameter as diagonal}} \approx 12.3\ m^2
