I did a quiz and we got the following question:
A cylindrical rod has a diameter of 2cm and on the cylinder is an isosceles triangle. The strength of the rod is proportional to the product of the base and the height squared. What are the maximum dimensions that will strengthen the cylinder.
We also got the following image:
I would really like to know the solution to this problem because no one in my class got the problem or had a thorough understanding of how to go about solving the problem.
Thanks a lot!
