Mathematical Modelling of a Can.
Mathematical Modelling: Can of Drink
Consider a drink can of capacity 330ml. Draw a diagram, or a number of diagrams which show all the features of the can.
Height: 11.5 cm
Radius: 3.25 cm
Diameter (top): 5.42 cm
Diameter (middle): 6.5 cm
Diameter (bottom): 5 cm
Vcan: 330 cm"
Use your diagrams of part 1 to help you choose a simple three dimensional shape which models this can and define suitable variables for this shape.
- I have used a cylinder to model a regular can of drink since it has similar features as a can, one of them being that one can unfold the cylinder into a rectangle (the sides) and two circles (top and bottom) which one can do with a can as well.
Area: A = 2πrh + 2πr"
Volume: V = (Area of base) x height
V(r) = πr"h
1ml = 1cm"
Variables are r and h
r = radius
h = height
By considering the volume of this shape, establish a relationship between the variables defined in part 2.
h = 11.5 cm ; r = 3.25 cm ; d = 6.5 cm
V(r) = πr"h h =
- I am using the relationship of the Volume Formula with the variables r and h to eliminate h as an unknown variable. By doing this step I can substitute h with the rearranged Formula, meaning that only r is left as an unknown variable.
Find a function, S, in terms of one of the variables defined in part 2, where S is the total Surface Area of the can.
330cm" = V = 2πr"h
