Solides d’Archimède 2014-04-29
Clémentine pose la question :
Pourquoi une pyramide a base carrée n'est elle pas un polyèdre archimedien ? J'ai pourtant essayé d'en construire un avec tout ses cotés égaux et ça fonctionne ! Aidez moi je n'en dors plus la nuit ? :S

Le salinon d'Archimèdre 1999-03-11
Don Craig pose la question :
I am trying to find the English translation of "Le salinon d'Archimèdre" and would appreciate any help. This is a figure, presumably studied by Archimedes, created from 4 semi-circles. Since I can't draw it for you, I will try to describe it with the help of the 5 collinear, horizontal points below.

. . . . . A B C D E 

A semi-circle is constructed on AE as diameter (let's say above AE).

Two more semi-circles are then constructed with diameters AB and DE on the same side of the line AE as the first semi-circle (above it). Finally, a fourth semi-circle is constructed on diameter BD, this time on the opposite side of the line AE from the others (i.e. below the line).

These semi-circles and the region enclosed by them constitute what is called in French "Le salinon d'Archimèdre".

If you know the English name of this curve I would appreciate it if you let me know.

A parabolic arch 2017-01-05
Rand pose la question :
It is most likely already been answered but I can not seem to find the right key words for the search engine?.

What I am looking for is, if you have an have arch/arc and you know the degree of slope and the height of the arch/arc from ground lvl; how do you factor the decreasing angle/#’s to get the distance tween the two feet on the assumption that the arch/arc is curved all the way to ground lvl?

a. where the legs widen continuously (till they hit ground) so yes parabolic &
b. where the legs come down straight after a ½ circumference run.

What I am focusing is the parabolic.

Many Thanks

Shooting a ball at a target 2016-02-16
Thys pose la question :
Hi
I have a problem with the formula that i use .(for programming)
I have looked all over the web to find a solution but no luck.
I have a cannon that shoots a ball at a target
I use this formula to calculate what my initial velocity must be to hit the target at a angle of 30 degrees and a distance of 15m (the cannon and target position is known) It works perfectly if both is at same height but if one is higher or lower it miss.

In an example I am working with the range is 30m, the angle is 45 degrees and the target is 10m higher than my position.
Please help
Formula = V0 = √RG / Sin(2α)

Archimedes, Euclid and "Circular Reasoning" 2015-11-15
Ron pose la question :
I have read about Archimedes and his work with sphere in cylinder and cone in cylinder and the volume relationships. Did he or any others also extend this to regular based polygon based regular like pillars, and columns? The ratio of 1/3 to 1 whole holds true with all regular based columns as example: a regular pyramid having a regular hexagon base inside a regular hexagon column of equal height.

Archimedes Burning Mirror 2012-07-17
Frakeetta pose la question :
Archimedes Burning Mirror There is a story about Archimedes that he used a “burning mirror” in the shape of a paraboloid of revolution to set fire to enemy ships in the harbor. What would be the equation of the parabola that one would rotate to form the appropriate paraboloid if it were to be designed to set fire to a ship 100m from the mirror? How large would the burning mirror need to be? What is the likelihood that this story is true?

Body measurements 2010-04-06
Amirul pose la question :
Recently I'm proposing my research question to my teacher for my extended essay. I'm an IB student. My research question is regarding the estimation of human in buying trousers through reference of neck. What does the relation between the diameter of the neck and the diameter of the waist? I want to see how far does the estimation theory is true for different type of people with different BMI(body mass index)..

But teacher said that it is golden ratio...so nothing interesting... =( really??? But i search on net.... state that my idea seems do not have any relation with the golden ratio so far..... i just want ask you... am I able to perform in my extended essay if i continue with this research question??

Babylonian geometry 2007-06-17
marleen pose la question :
The following problem and the solution were found on a Babylonian tablet dating from about 2600BC:

Problem:
60 is the Circumference, 2 is the perpendicular, find the chord.

Solution:

Thou double 2 and get 4
Take 4 from 20, thou gettest 16
Square 16, thou gettest 256
Take 256 from 400, thou gettest 144

Whence the square root of 144, 12 is the chord.

Such is the procedure. Modern day mathematicians have reasoned that the Babylonian Mathematician who solved this problem assumed that the value of Pi is 3. By explaining in detail how the Babylonian Mathematician must have solved this problem, justify the reasoning of the modern mathematicians.

My teacher has given us bridge with only one measurement. From the river to the roadway is 50 metres in length (vertically) The question he wants us to find out is. What is the distance between the vertical supports. He has said that: At a horizontal distance of 'x' metres from the foot of the arch the height of the arch, the height of the arch above the river 'h' metres is given by: h=-1/40(x squared) = 3x I don't understand how to find the distance between the support beams.
