Re: i need geometry help"The largest cone with the smallest surface area to volume ratio" "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20051129 07:04:52
Re: i need geometry helpAs a general rule, the larger a shape is, the higher its volumesurface area ratio. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20051129 07:41:09
Re: i need geometry helpI think the net of a cone is a rectangle with a circle stuck on it. The circle will become the base of the cone and the rectangle will wrap around the circle to make the height. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20051129 19:20:05
Re: i need geometry helpThe Net for a Cone would look something like the attached image (sketch only). There is flexibility where the full circle (the base) attaches to the partcircle (sides), so that could help us place it efficiently on the 3x3 paper.

Re: i need geometry helpI suppose that makes the majority of my last post obsolete. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
