Archimedes, Euclid and "Circular Reasoning" 2015-11-15
From Ron:
I have read about Archimedes and his work with sphere in cylinder and cone in cylinder and the volume relationships. Did he or any others also extend this to regular based polygon based regular like pillars, and columns? The ratio of 1/3 to 1 whole holds true with all regular based columns as example: a regular pyramid having a regular hexagon base inside a regular hexagon column of equal height.

From Mel:
This table shows the linear relationship between an aeroplane's height (above sea level) and the outside air temperature.
 h (cm) 120 340 480 600 1040 T (degrees C) 14.28 12.96 12.12 11.4 8.76
