1 1.6 Analyse Optimum Volume and Surface Area Estimation and oter informal metods of optimizing measures suc as surface area and volume often lead to reasonable solutions suc as te design of te tent in tis potograp. Sometimes owever, it is useful to develop algebraic and grapical models tat can be analysed wit greater precision. Example 1 Maximum Volume for a Given Surface Area Tillie as 40 m 2 of plastic seeting to build a greenouse in te sape of a square-based prism. Wat are te dimensions tat will provide te maximum volume, assuming se must cover all six sides wit seeting? Solution Te greenouse is to be in te sape of a square-based prism. Develop algebraic models to describe te volume and surface area of te greenouse. 54 MHR Capter 1 01_FFCM12_CH1.indd 54 3/6/09 12:17:38 PM

2 Volume V = Base area Heigt V = s 2 Surface Area S.A. = 2 Base area + 4 Side area S.A. = 2s 2 + 4s Rearrange tis formula to isolate. S.A. = 2s 2 + 4s S.A. - 2s 2 = 4s _ S.A. - 2s 2 = _ 4s 4s 4s S.A. - 2s2 = _ 4s Substitute tis expression into te volume equation. V = s 2 ( _ S.A. - 2s2 4s ) Substitute S.A. = 40 m 3, and simplify te equation. V = s ( 2 _ 40-2s2 4s ) V = _ 40s 4 - _ 2s3 4 V = 10s - 0.5s 3 Determine te maximum volume. Determine te base side lengt tat will give te maximum volume. Use a graping calculator. Use reasoning and systematic trial to coose appropriate window settings. Determine te coordinates of te maximum point on tis grap. Press 2nd [CALC]. Select 4:maximum. Follow te prompts, pressing after eac step. 1.6 Analyse Optimum Volume and Surface Area MHR 55 01_FFCM12_CH1.indd 55 3/6/09 12:17:39 PM

3 Te maximum volume of te greenouse is approximately 17.2 m 3, wic occurs wen te base side lengt is approximately 2.58 m. Use s = 2.58 to determine te eigt of te greenouse. V = s = _ = _ Te dimensions of te greenouse tat give te maximum volume of 17.2 m 3 are 2.58 m by 2.58 m by 2.58 m. Te maximum volume of a square-based prism occurs wen te side lengt of te square base is equal to te eigt. Example 2 Minimum Surface Area for a Given Volume An outdoor sporting goods manufacturer is designing a new tent in te sape of an isosceles rigt triangular prism. eigt, lengt, l base, b To maintain te sape of tis prism, te base of te triangular face must always be double its eigt. b = 2 To fit five people comfortably wit gear, te volume inside te tent needs to be 600 ft 3. Wat are te dimensions of a tent wit a volume of 600 ft 3 and a minimum surface area? 56 MHR Capter 1 01_FFCM12_CH1.indd 56

4 Solution Draw a net for te triangular prism. side bottom l x b = 2 front Develop simplified algebraic expressions for te area of eac face. Use te relationsip b = 2 to reduce te total number of variables. Front and Back Faces Te front and back faces are rigt isosceles triangles. A = 1 _ 2 b = 1 _ 2 (2) = 1 _ 2 (2) = Substitute b = 2. Simplify te expression. Floor Te floor of te tent is a rectangle wit dimensions b l. A = bl = (2)l Substitute b = 2. = 2l Sides Te sides are rectangles wit lengt l. Te widt is equal to te equal sides on te triangular faces. side x b = 2 front Te triangular face can be broken into two small triangles, eac wit legs units long and ypotenuse x units. Te two legs of tis triangle are bot equal to. 2 2 = x 1.6 Analyse Optimum Volume and Surface Area MHR 57 01_FFCM12_CH1.indd 57

5 Use te Pytagorean teorem. x 2 = + x 2 = 2 2 x 2 = 2 x = 2 x Collect like terms. Take te square root of bot sides. Use tis value to determine an expression for te area of one side of te tent. A l side l Total Surface Area Add te areas of te faces to develop an expression for te surface area of te tent. S.A. = 2(A Front ) + A Bottom + 2(A Side ) 2( ) + 2l + 2(1.4142l) = l Collect like terms and simplify. Te volume needs to be 600 ft 3. Write te volume in terms of and l ten simplify te expression for surface area. V = Base area Heigt = ( 1 _ 2 b ) = [_ 1 2 (2) ] V = l 600 = l _ 600 = _ 2 l _ l = 600 _ Substitute l = 600 of te eigt of te tent. Substitute b = 2 and simplify. Substitute V = 600. Divide bot sides by. to develop an expression of surface area in terms S.A. = l = ( _ 600) = ( _ 600) = 2 + _ 2897 Determine te minimum surface area. Te equation S.A. = 2 + _ 2897 gives te surface area for any isosceles rigt triangular prism wit volume 600 ft MHR Capter 1 01_FFCM12_CH1.indd 58

6 Grap te equation to determine te eigt tat minimizes te surface area. Use a graping calculator. Determine te coordinates of te minimum point on tis grap. Press 2nd [CALC]. Select 3:minimum. Follow te prompts, pressing ENTER after eac step. Te minimum surface area of te tent is 484 ft 2, wic occurs wen te eigt is approximately 9 ft. Determine te dimensions of te tent. Use 9 to determine te oter dimensions of te tent. b = 2 Te base is twice te eigt. = 2(9) = 18 Te base of te triangular face is approximately 18 ft. _ l = 600 _ = 600 (9) Te lengt of te tent is approximately 7.4 ft. Recall tis relationsip between te lengt and eigt of te tent. Te dimensions of an isosceles rigt triangular based prism saped tent, aving a volume of 600 ft 2, and minimum surface area are sown. = 9 ft l = 7.4 ft b = 18 ft 1.6 Analyse Optimum Volume and Surface Area MHR 59 01_FFCM12_CH1.indd 59
