A cylindrical beaker has a height of 5 inches and a volume of 63 cubic inches. A scientist pours a chemical from the beaker to a similar beaker with a height that is 100% greater.
What is the volume of the larger beaker?

Mark
The volume of the larger beaker would be 504 inches cubed.

Mark
I should clarify how to solve the problem. We start with V = pi r^2 h.
Solve for r^2; 63 = pi r^2 5. First divide by pi and then by 5. Get the square root of your answer (4.0107) to get the radius of 2.002674. Next we increase everything by 100% and use a height of 10 and a radius of 4.005348. Using the equation above and you will get the volume of 503.9998 or 504.
