The number of points on a line is equivalent to that of a surface 2011-03-24
From Gary:
I I was reading about how the number of points on a line is equivalent to that of a surface. This was done by taking any point on a line then taking alternating digits and making them as points on an x and y axis therefore points on a surface.The problem is as i see it if you just take a line then hold it over a surface you have just put the points on the line in a one to one correspondence with the points directly under it on the surface.Now you have all the rest of the surface which cannot be mapped onto the line since it is already used up.What am i missing?

Surface area of an irregular shape 2008-12-15
From Patrick:
An irregular shaped object (lets say a gold nugget, not smooth with pockets) can have its volume determined by comparing its mass in water.

Is there any method or means or anything that could be used to determine the surface area of this shape? Whether that be theoretical mathematical formula to using a special infrared technique,etc...

The problem I foresee is that the component parts cannot be divided into smaller geometric shapes. I would propose an answer although I don't know if it is a good one: A liquid material that dries super-thin, but has a very specific and easily determined volume/mass is coated over the object. Measure the mass difference between the beginning sample of fluid and the mass after the object has been coated. Then determine the surface area of the same mass of fluid in a geometric shape. Is this feasible?

Scaling a logo 2008-10-20
From Carl:
Hello! I hope that you can help me out here. I've been trying to figure this out for awhile now and can't come up with the answer logically. I am a graphic designer by trade and need to figure out how large my client's logo should be. The logo will need to be sized proportionally with the surface area of the page. The logo will always be sized at 1.2938(w) x .75(h) on a letter size page (8.5 x 11).
My question is...
When you increase the size of the page (not always proportionally sized - dimensionally) how do figure out the NEW size of the logo. I could have a page 20" x 40" or 30' x 4'... or ANY size really. I believe I have the new surface area of the logo but can't find the new dimensions.

Intersection of perpendicular cylindrical surfaces 2001-07-31
From Charlie:
Please consider two right circular cylinders, perpendicular one to the other, and of unlike radii in a 3 dimensional Cartesian space with mutually perpendicular x,y,z axes. If one cylinder is centered on the y axis with radius ra, and the other on the z axis with radius rb, then the expression for the first surface would be x2 + z2 = ra2, y = any number. Likewise, the second cylinder's surface would be x2 + y2 = rb2, z = any number.

It is my intent to define the curve at the intersection of these two cylindrical surfaces. From sketching the conditions it appears that this intersection resembles an ellipse folded about its minor axis.

Surface area of a contact lens 2000-06-06
From Evie Contreras:
I would like to know how to calculate the surface area of a contact lens with a radius of 7mm? I know that the area of a circle is pi R squared, but a contact lens has a dome.

Lining a cone 2000-04-06
From Jim Campbell:
I am not a student, I am trying to solve a business problem. The question. If I want to put a lining in a chute that is cone shaped, how do I calculate the size steel plate I need to do that. The cone is 10' in diameter at the top and has a 20" hole at the bottom. The total height of the chute is 8'.

Formulae for Surface Area. 1997-04-28
From Gary Millward:
I'm trying to help my son with his Math homework (Grade 10) and he has to find the surface area of a cone and rectangluar pyramid. We have the formulas for the volume of these solids, but can't seem to locate the formulas for surface area.

Nombres algebriques sur Q 2002-04-11
From Un eleve:
On sait que le corps des nombres algebriques sur Q est algebriquement clos. A priori partant d'un polynome f a coefficients algebriques sur Q on devrait pouvoir un trouver un polynome g a coefficients rationnels dont une partie des racines est constituee de racines du premier. y-at-il un algorithme qui permet qui permet le passage de f a g ?
