im really struggling to come to terms with optimsation, ive got to answer this question but i really have no idea how to do it
can u please have a look at it and see if u can show me how i go about doing it, thanks so much!
... A childs drinking beaker is in the shape of a cylinder with a hemisperical lid and a circular flat base. the radius of the cylinder is r cm and the height is h cm. the volume of the cylinder is 400cm cubed.
show that the surface area of plastic, A®, needed to make the beaker is given by A®= 3pi squared + 800/r .
( the curved surface area of a hemispere of radius is 2pi squared)
i also have to find the value of r which ensures that the surface area of plastic is minimised =S
thank you again xx
help with optimsation pleaseee!
