Problem set 2, PDF 2, Part 2 (d) - question regarding the max number of dimples of certain size. Does anybody understand how to approach this? I definitely get an answer where more than 100 dimples(r = 0.15) may exist on a sphere R=1.5. I tried many things: e.g. dividing sphere area by the dimple spherical cap area or dividing sphere area by a rectangle formed by a dimple, etc. In all cases I get an answer which says more than 100 dimples will fit on a sphere surface without overlapping. confused :-(
