 Volume/726127: How many cubic feet of sand will I need to fill a pipe 1.5" I.D. which is 10 feet long? Thanks in advance!1 solutions Answer 444535 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15747)   on 2013-03-14 19:00:09 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How many cubic feet of sand will I need to fill a pipe 1.5" I.D. which is 10 feet long? : Use the volume of a cylinder: V = Diameter of 1.5, a radius of .75 inches Change length to inches also; 12(10) = 120 inches V = V ~ 212 cu/in : Change to cubic ft, there are 1728 cu/in in 1 cu/ft = .123; roughly cu/ft
 Travel_Word_Problems/725594: I've been working on this problem and can only come up with an estimation, with no way of showing how I got there. A person is in a rowboat 3 miles from the closest point on a straight shoreline, as illustrated in the figure. The person would like to reach a cabin that is 8 miles down the shoreline. The person can row at 4 miles per hour and jog at 7 miles per hour. A.)How long will it take to reach the cabin if the person rows straight toward shore at point A and then jogs to the cabin? I estimated 1 hr. 50 minutes, but that is just a guess. B.) How long will it take to reach the cabin if the person rows straight to the cabin and does no jogging? C.)Find the minimum time to reach the cabin. 1 solutions Answer 444372 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15747)   on 2013-03-13 20:51:00 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A person is in a rowboat 3 miles from the closest point on a straight shoreline, as illustrated in the figure. The person would like to reach a cabin that is 8 miles down the shoreline. The person can row at 4 miles per hour and jog at 7 miles per hour. : A.)How long will it take to reach the cabin if the person rows straight toward shore at point A and then jogs to the cabin? A time equation: time = dist/speed total time (t)= row time + walk time t = + t = .75 + 1.143 t 1.893 hrs or about 1 hr + .893(60) = 53.6 min : B.) How long will it take to reach the cabin if the person rows straight to the cabin and does no jogging? Solve this as a right triangle, direct to the cabin will be the hypotenuse h = h = 8.544 miles Rowing at 4 mph: = 2.136 hrs or about 2 hrs 8 min : C.)Find the minimum time to reach the cabin. This is a little more complicated. He will row to a point on the shore line, then jog from that point to the cabin. The position of the landing point has to be determined to find the rowing distance and the jogging distance that will yield the least total travel time> : Let x = distance from the closest point on the shoreline to the landing point Then (8-x) = distance from the landing point to the cabin (the jogging distance) The rowing distance will be the hypotenuse of the triangle formed by x and 3 : total time = rowing time + jogging time t(x) = + : Graphically Minimum on the graph, x=2.1 mi from the closest point on shoreline, then Minimum time is when landing point is: 8-2.1 = 5.9 mi from the cabin Then it will take about 1.76 hrs to get to the cabin : Check this find the rowing distance: = 3.66 mi then 3.66/4 = .915 hrs rowing find the jogging distance: 8 - 2.1 = 5.9 mi then 5.9/7 = .843 hrs jogging Total time: .915 + .843 = 1.76 hrs min time to the cabin

 Trigonometry-basics/725262: A motorist noticed that as he got 10 km closer to a mountain, the angle of elevation of the top of the mountain changed from 10 degrees to 70 degrees. Approximate the height of the mountain. 1 solutions Answer 444129 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15747)   on 2013-03-12 18:48:21 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A motorist noticed that as he got 10 km closer to a mountain, the angle of elevation of the top of the mountain changed from 10 degrees to 70 degrees. Approximate the height of the mountain. : Draw this out, consider the triangle formed the by 10 km and the slant ranges from the two given points. The interior angles: 10, 180-70=110, and 60 degrees Find the slant range(s) to the top of the mountain from initial position using the law of sines. = cross multiply .866s = .9397*10 s = s = 10.85 km to the top of the mountain : A right triangle where the side opposite is the height(h) of the mountain sin(10) = h = 10.85 * .17365 h = .32125 km or 321.25 meters high
