**Steve**, Monday, December 2, 2013 at 5:17amassuming a constant volume v, we have

v = pi r^2 h

so, h = v/(pi r^2)

the surface area is

a = 2pi r(r+h)

= 2pi r(r + v/(pi r^2))

= 2 pi r^2 + 2v/r

da/dr = 4pi r - 2v/r^2

= 2(2pi r^3 - v)/r^2

we want da/dr=0 for max/min area, so

r = ∛(v/(2pi))

h = v/(pi r^2) = ∛(4v/pi)

but, is this min or max area? Check a'' to be sure it's a minimum
