What must be the elevation of an observer in order that he may be able to see an object on the earth 536 km away? Assume the earth to be a smooth sphere with radius 6378.1 km. - Glass of juice

Glass of juice shaped cylinder 16 cm height and base diameter of 7 cm is filled with juice so that the level is 4 cm below the rim of the glass. Determine the maximum angle of the cup can be tilted and juice don't overflow. - Triangular prism

The base perpendicular triangular prism is a right triangle whose hypotenuse measures 5 cm and one cathetus 2 cm. Height of the prism is equal to 7/9 of the perimeter of the base. Calculate the surface area of prism. - Triangular prism

Calculate the surface area and volume of a triangular prism, base right triangle if a = 3 cm, b = 4 cm, c = 5 cm and height of prism h=12 cm. - Box

Calculate the angle between box base 9 x 14 and body diagonal length 18. - Tank

In the middle of a cylindrical tank with a bottom diameter 251 cm is standing rod which is 13 cm above the water surface. If we bank rod its end reach surface of the water just by the tank wall. How deep is the tank? - Triangular prism

Base of perpendicular triangular prism is a right triangle with leg length 5 cm. Content area of the largest side wall of its surface is 130 cm² and the height of the body is 10 cm. Calculate its volume. - Axial section

Axial section of the cylinder has a diagonal 40 cm. The size of the shell and the base surface are in the ratio 3:2. Calculate the volume and surface area of this cylinder. - Felix

Calculate how much land saw Felix Baumgartner after jump from 32 km above ground. The radius of the Earth is R = 6378 km. - Equilateral cylinder

Equilateral cylinder (height = base diameter; h = 2r) has a volume of V = 199 cm^{3}. Calculate the surface area of the cylinder. - Cuboid

Cuboid ABCDEFGH with 10 cm height has a base edge length 6 cm and 8 cm. Determine angle between body diagonal and the base plane (round to degrees). - Children pool

The bottom of the children's pool is a regular hexagon with a = 60 cm side. The distance of opposing sides is 104 cm, the height of the pool is 45 cm. A) How many liters of water can fit into the pool? B) The pool is made of a double layer of plastic film. - Tetrahedral prism

Calculate surface and volume tetrahedral prism, which has a rhomboid-shaped base, and its dimensions are: a = 12 cm, b = 7 cm, ha = 6 cm and prism height h = 10 cm. - Horizon

The top of a lighthouse is 19 m above the sea. How far away is an object which is just “on the horizon”? [Assume the earth is a sphere of radius 6378.1 km.] - Rhombus base

Calculate the volume and surface area of prisms whose base is a rhombus with diagonals u_{1}= 12 cm and u_{2}= 10 cm. Prism height is twice base edge length. - Truncated pyramid

How many cubic meters is volume of a regular four-side truncated pyramid with edges one meter and 60 cm and high 250 mm? - Pine wood

From a trunk of pine 6m long and 35 cm in diameter with a carved beam with a cross-section in the shape of a square so that the square had the greatest content area. Calculate the length of the sides of a square. Calculate the volume in cubic meters of lum
