I have 2 questions here:
1) Open cardboard boxes are to be made and each box must have a square base and a capacity of 4000cm3. Find the dimensions of the box which contains the minimum area of cardboard.
2) A cylinder is cut from a solid sphere of radius 3cm. Given that the cylinder has a height of 2h, find its radius in terms of h. Hence show that the volume, Vm3, of the cylinder is given by V=2πh(9-h^2). Find the max volume of the cylinder as h varies.
Thanks. It's doing my head in....

1) V = 4000 = b^2.l
SA = b^2 + 4bl write all in terms of b or l, differentiate and equate to zero, find the other variable.
2) draw a side view of the sphere, and the cylinder inside it. apply pythagoras.
