- Cu wire

Copper wire has a length l = 980 m and diameter d = 8 mm. Calculate the weight if density of copper is ρ = 8500 kg/m^{3}. Result round to one decimal place. - Alfa, beta, gama

In the triangle ABC is the size of the internal angle BETA 8 degrees larger than the size of the internal angle ALFA and size of the internal angle GAMA is twice the size of the angle BETA. Determine the size of the interior angles of the triangle ABC. - A drone

A flying drone aimed the area for an architect. He took off perpendicularly from point C to point D. He was at a height of 300 m above the plane of ABC. The drone from point D pointed at a BDC angle of 43°. Calculate the distance between points C and B in - The farmer

The farmer would like to first seed his small field. The required amount depends on the seed area. Field has a triangular shape. The farmer had fenced field, so he knows the lengths of the sides: 119, 111 and 90 meters. Find a suitable way to determine th - Forces

In point O acts three orthogonal forces: F_{1}= 20 N, F_{2}= 7 N, and F_{3}= 19 N. Determine the resultant of F and the angles between F and forces F_{1}, F_{2}, and F_{3}. - Two cyclists

Two cyclists started from crossing in the same time. One goes to the north speed 20 km/h, the second eastward at speed 26 km/h. What will be the direct distance cycling 30 minutes from the start? - Built-up area

John build up area 5 x 7 = 35 m^{2}with building with a wall thickness 30 cm. How many centimeters would have to subtract from thickness of the walls that built-up area fell by 9%? - Alien ship

The alien ship has the shape of a sphere with a radius of r = 3000m, and its crew needs the ship to carry the collected research material in a cuboid box with a square base. Determine the length of the base and (and height h) so that the box has the large - Iron density

Calculate the weight of a 2 m long rail pipe with an internal diameter of 10 cm and a wall thickness of 3 mm. The iron density is p = 7.8 g/cm3. - Ratio of squares

A circle is given in which a square is inscribed. The smaller square is inscribed in a circular arc formed by the side of the square and the arc of the circle. What is the ratio of the areas of the large and small squares? - Photocopier

A photocopier enlarges a picture in the ratio 7:4. How many times will a picture of size 6cm by 4cm be enlarged to fit on a 30cm by 20 cm page? - Regular triangular pyramid

Calculate the volume and surface area of the regular triangular pyramid and the height of the pyramid is 12 centimeters, the bottom edge has 4 centimeters and the height of the side wall is 12 centimeters - Cone - from volume surface area

The volume of the rotating cone is 1,018.87 dm^{3}, its height is 120 cm. What is the surface area of the cone? - Circles

In the circle with a radius 7.5 cm are constructed two parallel chord whose lengths are 9 cm and 12 cm. Calculate the distance of these chords (if there are two possible solutions write both). - ISO trapezoid v2

bases of Isosceles trapezoid measured 16 cm and 4 cm and its perimeter is 47 cm. What is the are of a trapezoid? - Compute 4

Compute the exact value of the area of the triangle with sides 14 mi, 12 mi, and 12 mi long. - Rectangular garden

The perimeter of Peter's rectangular garden is 98 meters. The width of the garden is 60% shorter than its length. Find the dimensions of the rectangular garden in meters. Find the garden area in square meters. - Tiles

From how many tiles 20 cm by 30 cm we can build a square of maximum dimensions, if we have maximum 881 tiles. - Ladder 2

Ladder 6.4 meters long is positioned in the well such that its lower end is distanced from the wall of the well 1.2 m. The upper part of the ladder is supported on the upper edge of the well. How high is the well? - Rectangle area
