Finding the Speed of Saturn The radius of the orbit of Saturn is about 887 million miles, and it takes Saturn about 10,767 days to complete one orbit. Estimate the orbital speed of Saturn in miles per hour. Solution Speed S = distance D divided by time T. We need to find the number of miles Saturn travels in 1 year and then divide it by the number of hours in 10,767 days.
Slide 15: Slide 1.1 - 15 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Teaching Example 7:
Finding the Speed of Saturn Solution (continued) The distance Saturn travels in one year is The number of hours in 10,767 days is Saturn’s orbital speed is approximately
Slide 16: Slide 1.1 - 16 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Teaching Example 8:
Finding the Volume of a Soda Can The volume V of a cylindrical soda can is given by where r is its radius and h is its height. a. If r = 1.5 inches and h = 4.5 inches, find the volume of the can in cubic inches.
b. Could this can hold 16 fluid ounces? (Hint: 1 cubic inch equals 0.55 fluid ounce.)
Slide 17: Slide 1.1 - 17 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Teaching Example 8:
Finding the Volume of a Soda Can Solution b. To find the number of fluid ounces, multiply the number of cubic inches by 0.55: Yes, the can could hold 16 fluid ounces.
Slide 18: Slide 1.1 - 18 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Teaching Example 9:
Calculating the thickness of aluminum foil A rectangular sheet of aluminum foil is 20 cm by 30 cm and weighs 2.7 grams. If 1 cubic centimeter of aluminum foil weighs 2.7 grams, find the thickness of the aluminum foil. Solution Start by making a sketch. Since A = L x W and V = A x T we need to find V and A. Then we will calculate T, using
Slide 19: Slide 1.1 - 19 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Because the foil weighs 2.7 grams and each 2.7 grams equals 1 cubic centimeter, the volume of the foil is 1 cm3. Teaching Example 9:
