A cylinder shaped sculpture is 24 meters high with a diameter of 6.8 meters. An artist plans to spray paint the entire surface with silver paint. If 1 can of spray paint covers 50 square meters, how many cans does the artist need to paint the sculpture?

Area of circle = πr^2

Perimeter of a circle = 2πr

Diameter = 2r

Paint needed = (2πr^2 + 24[2πr])/50

I'll let you do the calculations.

5 Cans

SA=2B+PH

SA=2(pi*r^2)+(2*pi*r)H

SA=2(3.14*3.4^2)+(2*3.14*3.4)8

SA=2*36.2984+21.352*8

SA=72.5968+170.816

SA=243.4128 ft^2
