Solutions

Chapter 2, Problem 4P
To determine

To find: The function that models volume of a cylinder in terms of its radius whose height is four times its radius.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 4P

The function is modeled as V(w)=4πr3 .

Explanation of Solution

Volume (V) of a cylinder is,

V=Areaofcicularbase×height

The radius of cylinder is r and h is height of cylinder.

Model the function in single variable r .

The height (h) is four times its radius, express it algebraically.

h=4r

Area of circular base is,

Area=πr2

Summarize all the information in a table as shown below,

In Words In Algebra
Radius of cylinder r
Height of cylinder 4r
Area of Circular base πr2

Model an equation form the above information.

V=Areaofcicularbase×heightV(w)=πr2(4r)=4πr3

Thus, the function is modeled as V(w)=4πr3 .
