 Question 2173: Dear sir/mam, Actually,I am finding Area of segment in a Ball mill(Circle). But I am getting segment area very higher(100 m2) for a 8.5 m3 mill volume. I used the formula for segment area which is having inverse of cosine. Could u please tell me the correct formula for finding segment area. Thankyou, Premanand.S Click here to see answer by longjonsilver(2297)

 Question 2177: Dear sir, It is not a hollow cylinder .It is a verticallly positioned rotating cylinder(i.e. cylinder in sleeping position ,or in other words, the cylinder height is parallel to the earth suface).It is filled with balls (of different dimensions) to a particular height inside the mill. Company people will not give the amount of balls in the mill.they will provide only the height upto which the balls are present inside the mill.they will not give other data except this. So my data are follows, Mill dia = 2.21m Mill Length = 3.21m Height upto which the balls are present inside the mill = 1.14m SO the free space inside the mill is (2.21(dia) - 1.14) = 1.07 m SO I have considered this part as a segment area. Hope now you can understand the concept. Please reply the various formulae for Segment Area soon Thankyou, Prem Click here to see answer by longjonsilver(2297)

 Question 3926: Tue. 6/21/05 Frequently in the course of my job as an electrical estimator, I must determine the height of existing parking lot light poles from the ground. Given the fact that I cannot physically measure a standing pole from the ground (it could be 35 - 40' tall), shouldn't I be able to accurately determine the height of a light pole from the ground, using trigonometry? For example, can I measure off 20' along the ground and assume a Right Triangle with the pole being the adjacent side to solve the equation? I am decidedly math handicapped and am looking for an easy and repeatable way to measure light poles from the ground. I am anxiously looking forward to your reply.
