Surface Area

000234333 EFT4: Math: Task 5: Surface Area of Cubes Introducing Surface Area For a fifth or sixth grade class to understand the concept surface area in relation to a cube they need to understand what a cube is first. They will learn that a cube is a special type of rectangular solid. The length, width, and height of a cube are exactly the same. After explaining what a cube is they will need to understand what it means to find the surface area. The surface area is not the same as finding the volume...

Surface Area Volume Ratio Experiment

Surface area / Volume ratio Experiment Introduction: The surface area to volume ratio in living organisms is very important. Nutrients and oxygen need to diffuse through the cell membrane and into the cells. Most cells are no longer than 1mm in diameter because small cells enable nutrients and oxygen to diffuse into the cell quickly and allow waste to diffuse out of the cell quickly. If the cells were any bigger than this then it would take too long for the nutrients and oxygen to diffuse into...

Total Surface Area and Rate of Reaction

Planning Aim To determine how the surface area of the tablets affects the rate of the reaction. To determine which form of tablets gives the biggest surface area resulting in the fastest reaction rate. Investigation question: What is the relationship between the total surface area of the tablets and the rate of the reaction? Hypothesis: The rate of reaction will be the fastest when the tablets crushed into powder as there is a bigger total surface area resulting in more effective collisions...

Math Exam on Volume and Surface Area

AREA  (i) The area of a rhombus is equal to the area of a triangle whose base and the corresponding altitude are 24.8 cm and 16.5 cm respectively. If one of the diagonal of the rhombus is 22 cm, find the length of the other diagonal. (ii) The floor of a rectangular hall has a perimeter 250m. If the cost of paining the four walls at the rate of Rs 10 per m2 is Rs 1500. Find the height of the hall. (iii) A room is half as long again as it is broad. The cost of carpeting the room at Rs...

Surface Area

Surface area Surface area is the measure of how much exposed area a solid object has, expressed in square units. Mathematical description of the surface area is considerably more involved than the definition of arc length of a curve. For polyhedra (objects with flat polygonal faces) the surface area is the sum of the areas of its faces. Smooth surfaces, such as a sphere, are assigned surface area using their representation as parametric surfaces. This definition of the surface area is based on methods...

The Effect of Changing the surface area on the Rate of Reaction?

of Changing the surface area on the Rate of Reaction? By : 22/10/2013 The effect of changing the surface area on the rate of reaction? Unit Question: Should we speed things up or slow them down? Hypothesis: According to collision theory, should the surface area increase the amount of collisions increase increasing the rate of reaction. Therefore, my hypothesis is that when the surface area increases the rate...

Surface Area to Volume Ratio and the Relation to the Rate of Diffusion.

Surface Area to Volume Ratio and the Relation to the Rate of Diffusion Aim and Background This is an experiment to examine how the Surface Area / Volume Ratio affects the rate of diffusion and how this relates to the size and shape of living organisms. The surface area to volume ratio in living organisms is very important. Nutrients and oxygen need to diffuse through the cell membrane and into the cells. Most cells are no longer than 1mm in diameter because small cells enable nutrients and oxygen...

Surface Area of a Sphere

|Subject: Surface area of a sphere | A connection which could be illustrated, and could be understood by students who know the perimeter of a circle, runs as follows: Put the sphere of radius R inside a cylinder, with the cylinder just touching the equator, and cut off at the height of the top and bottom of the sphere. (A cutaway view is in the diagram.) [pic] What is the area of the curved part of...
