From Bubba:
For a science project, I'm collecting methane gas in an inner tube. In addition to measuring psi of the inner tube, I'd like to calculate the volume of gas collected. What is the formula for or how would I calculate the volume of an inner tube? I appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks so much. Bubba

Sharing a donut 2001-09-06
From Amanda:
You have invited 11 people over to your house one day, and your friends are hungry. You go into the kitchen and find out you only have 1 donut (with a hole in the middle). In order to feed 12 people (including you), you must cut the donut into 12 pieces with only using a straight knife and cutting 3 times. This is NOT a trick question.
