- Axial cut of a rectangle
Calculate the volume and surface of the cylinder whose axial cut is a rectangle 15 cm wide with a diagonal of 25 cm long.
How much distilled water must the pharmacist add to 30g of a 30% hydrogen peroxide solution to obtain a 3% solution to clogging?

- TV transmitter
The volume of water in the rectangular swimming pool is 6998.4 hectoliters. The promotional leaflet states that if we wanted all the pool water to flow into a regular quadrangle with a base edge equal to the average depth of the pool, the prism would have.
- Cube in a sphere
The cube is inscribed in a sphere with volume 8818 cm3. Determine the length of the edges of a cube.
- Axial section

- Sand pile
Auto sprinkled with sand to approximately conical shape. Workers wanted to determine the volume (amount of sand) and therefore measure the circumference of the base and the length of both sides of the cone (over the top). What is the volume of the sand c
- Circular pool
The base of pool is circle with a radius r = 10 m excluding circular segment that determines chord length 10 meters. Pool depth is h = 2m. How many hectoliters of water can fit into the pool?
