 A 52 cubic foot box 2006-06-14 From Konstanze:I need to figure out what LXHXW I need to create a 1.5 cubic meter or 52 cubic foot volume--there is an answer in your database that relates to this..but it does not give the formula to go from cubic feet/inches to a measurement for a box. Empirically I can figure out that 3 x 3 x 3 equals 27 and that 3.5 feet (42") x 3.5 x 3.5 equals 42.87 and 3.75 x 3.75 x 3.75 equals 52.73 which is about 1.5 cubic meters (1cubic meter = 52.971643 cubic feet) i.e a box 45 x 45x 45 " There must be an easier way. Answered by Penny Nom. Lunes 1999-02-04 From Kai G. Gauer:A prof once told me that a certain type of lune is quadrable given that the diameter is an integer. She used the construction of a right isosceles triangle within a semicircle and later constructed another semicircle on the base of the first semicircle and used area subtraction to show equality to a smaller triangle with quadrable area. What happens when the original inscribed triangle is no longer isosceles? She mentioned something about other lunes also being quadrable; but not all. What are the dimensions of other such lunes? Note: I'm not certain if I still have my hercules account; please simply post on Q&Q. Thanks! Answered by Chris Fisher.
