Question

A cylindrical can is to have volume 1500 cubic centimeters.
Determine the radius and the height which will minimize the amount
of material to be used.

Note that the surface area of a closed cylinder is
S=2πrh+2πr^{2} and the volume of a cylindrical can is
V=πr^{2}h

radius =. cm

height = cm

Answer #1

A manufacturer makes a cylindrical can with a volume of 500
cubic centimeters. What dimensions (radius and height) will
minimize the material needed to produce each can, that is, minimize
the surface area? Explain and show all steps business calculus.

240 square cm of metal is available to make a cylindrical can,
closed on the top and bottom. The can-making process is so
efficient that it can use all of the metal. What are the radius and
height of the can with the largest possible volume? Give exact
answers and approximate answers.
Volume of a cylinder: V = πr2h
Surface area of a cylinder: 2πr2 + 2πrh

A cylinder shaped can needs to be constructed to hold 400 cubic
centimeters of soup. The material for the sides of the can costs
0.04 cents per square centimeter. The material for the top and
bottom of the can need to be thicker, and costs 0.05 cents per
square centimeter. Find the dimensions for the can that will
minimize production cost.

A company is planning to manufacture cylindrical above-ground
swimming pools. When filled to the top, a pool must hold 100 cubic
feet of water. The material used for the side of a pool costs $3
per square foot and the mate-rial used for the bottom of a pool
costs $2 per square foot.(There is no top.) What is the radius of
the pool which minimizes the manufacturing cost? (Hint: The volume
of a cylinder of height hand radius r isV=πr2h,...

A microwaveable cup-of-soup package needs to be constructed in
the shape of cylinder to hold 250 cubic centimeters of soup. The
sides and bottom of the container will be made of styrofoam costing
0.03 cents per square centimeter. The top will be made of glued
paper, costing 0.07 cents per square centimeter. Find the
dimensions for the package that will minimize production
cost.

a cylindrical can holds 250 ml of liquid. Find the dimensions of
the can (radius and height) that will minimize the amount of
material used (surface area). Please show your work. Thank you.

The dimeter of the base and the height of a cylindrical can are
measured, and the measurement are known to have errors of at most
0.5cm. if the dimeter and height are taken to be 4cm and 6cm,
respectively, estimate the maximum possible error in
a- the volume V of the cylindrical.
b- the surface area S of the cylindrical.

An open cylindrical trashcan is to hold 12 cubic feet of
material. What should be its dimensions if the cost of material
used is to be a minimum? [Surface Area, S = πr^2 + 2πrℎ where r =
radius and h = height.]

A cylindrical can is built to store a food. This can is
constructed without a lid and must contain 100cm3 of volume. Find
the radius and height of this cylinder so that the amount of
material used in its manufacture is minimal.

A grain silo has the shape of a right circular cylinder
surmounted by a hemisphere. If the silo is to have a volume of
516π ft3, determine the radius and height of
the silo that requires the least amount of material to build.
Hint: The volume of the silo is
πr2h
