you mean like you have a block of clay 3x7x7 and want to make a hemisphere?

I think thats what he means. Just use the length of 3m as the diameter

does the hemisphere have to be .... half a circle or can it be more like parabaloid?

It is a question from my geometry book and it says book. and it asks what is the largest hemisphere I can make out of the box. And it refers to Volume

go with r = 3 m

  • anonymous
why would you use r=3?

Because if you cut out the hemisphere with radius 3m then it will use all of the vertical height possible.
