What information would you need to make it easier to calculate, what the actual length of the pipe was before it was bent ?

#3 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-21 14:58:32

I'd like to know how you solve this?

That is another thread, please keep it separate smile

The picture is in post #34 the measurements are from top to bottom, top of the pipe in the image, to the bottom of the pipe in the image.  Those measurements are found in Post #1.

#7 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-21 11:36:45

Tell me the information you need and why you need it ?

#8 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-21 10:57:36

I don't know what is so difficult to understand.  Looking at the pipe image in post #34, you see it's a pipe that is bent.  How can you measure it's length as if it was straight, not bent ? I've been told that I need to measure the bent angle of the pipe as well as the other straight areas, is there not a more intelligent way to do this, then having all these measurements at hand ?

The picture in post 34 is not correct, it's close enough.

What did you mean by 'degree' in the first post?

Degree as in it's not completely bent, it's bent to a degree, to a angle !

Yes,.... that method is called geogebra!!

I understand, once again, if I saw a bent pipe.

And I wanted to know it's length before it was bent, since I don't know the history of this pipe can this be found out without algebra ?

#13 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-21 02:04:16

Is there a simpler method without needing algebraic expressions, I'm sure there is.

#15 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-20 18:17:51

A chord, where would you get such an idea from, it's a rough pipe, sketch.

#17 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-20 17:52:01

The image is suppose to represent a pipe, use your imagination.  I gave the measurements from top to bottom, the top would be the top of the pipe as seen in the image, the bottom, obviously the bottom of the pipe.  Is there a formula to find out the length of the pipe as though the pipe did not have a bend, and was straight, or must the measurements of the bend of the pipe be known ?

#18 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-20 14:40:07

The diameter is

.  If you really need the angle measurements, I'll get those numbers.  I'm really hoping there is a genius way to figure it out without finding out the length of the object, which includes pipe length followed by the angle of the bend measurements.

#19 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-20 07:14:52

What if I don't have the angle, there is no other solution, I must have the angle ?

You mean, direct distance from one end to the other?

Direct Length.

The white is the pipe.  From Top > Bottom measured.

#23 Re: Help Me ! » Measure length without bend ? » 2013-11-20 06:46:14

That is all the information I can retrieve.  The pipe is 11.76cm measuring from the top of the pipe to the bottom including the bend. I want the length of the pipe, as though the pipe is stretched out.

How do I access them, when I write a post, there are no latex tags ?
