I have a box that is 3m by 7m by 7m. What is the largest hemisphere I could "carve" out of this box?

    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

    my intuition says that it would have a radius or 3 and span 6 at its widest part

    go with r = 3 m

    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.
