I'm wondering...did you take calculus as an elective?

Ms. Name,
If I had taken calculus, it would have been as a suppository.

edit: "A suppository is a drug delivery system that is inserted either into the rectum (rectal suppository), vagina (vaginal suppository) or urethra (urethral suppository) where it dissolves.

They are used to deliver both systemically-acting and locally-acting medications.

The alternative term for delivery of medicine via such routes, is known as a pharmaceutical pessary.

The general principle is that the suppository is inserted as a solid, and will dissolve inside the body to deliver the medicine."

Ms. Name,
Think of it like an ongoing TV show, where many old subplot threads aren't resolved until the last episode, and some are never resolved at all. The mysteries are still fun to argue over!

So this is going to be like the X-Files?
We will never know who took Mulders sister out of the West Tisbury house window?
My daughter has her POBox in West Tisbury. I wonder if she still plays that music in her head when she goes to get her mail.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samantha_Mulder
"Samantha's storyline is presumably resolved in the Season 7 episode, "Closure". In that episode, Scully watches a 1989 tape in which Mulder undergoes hypnotic regression therapy, which another agent describes as "garden-variety compensatory abduction fantasy" which feeds Mulder's "unconscious hope that his sister is still alive". Later, with the help of a medium, Mulder discovers Samantha's diary, which states that in 1979 at age 14, while living in California with Jeffrey Spender, she was the subject of numerous tests at the hands of the Cigarette Smoking Man. Unable to bear the testing any longer, Samantha ran away and was eventually admitted to a hospital. Arbutus Ray, the admitting nurse from the hospital, tells Mulder about the young girl. Ray adds that a group of men (one of whom seems to be the Cigarette Smoking Man) came to the hospital to claim the girl, only to find that she had disappeared from her locked hospital room. Ray also describes how she had a vision that was eerily similar to others', who had also lost children in a similar fashion. It is revealed that Samantha was taken by "spiritual intervention" beings called "Walk-ins", which save souls from painful fates. While in the nearby woods later, Mulder has a dreamlike vision and is briefly reunited with Samantha's spirit. After Mulder returns, Scully asks if he is alright. Mulder replies "I'm fine. I'm free," suggesting that he, like several of the other parents whose children have disappeared, accepts that Samantha's soul is in "a better place"."

Sigh... best show in the world. I was actually one of the founding members of a dubious club: The GATB (Gillian Anderson Testosterone Brigade). Of course, that was a long time ago. And they DID resolve the sister thing... the aliens did indeed take her, and she died somewhere out in space.

For a lot of us longtime fans, that was the turning point episode where the show no longer had a spiritual heart. The show effectively jumped the shark the next season...

I took it in high school- 2 yrs. That allowed me to get advanced placement in college into the second year calculus class. big mistake.
I had to get a B to get credit for the first year, and barely, just barely scraped by with a low B. messed up my GPA, lowered my other grades because I had to study so hard for the calculus, which I NEVER really understood. Differential equations, it was. horrible.

Ideally, you'd call an engineer and ask them. This is more difficult than it sounds, though. My brother-in-law is an engineer for Boeing (worked on the F-18), and to ask him a question, you have to do some serious distracting of him, then your question has to grab his interest. Otherwise, he will fade quickly back into the fog he lives in, where he has to be reminded to come home from work, etc.

Mr. Star,
If this is for an engineering class, ideally your textbook would outline a straightforward method, ideally in a section that was recently assigned for you to read before doing the homework.

Mr. Star,
This sounds like an engineering problem. Like Dr. J said, you could consult an engineer, or possibly an engineering textbook, depending on how much time you have to read the book and how in-depth you want the analysis to be.

Ah, so this is how much meat a structure can hold. That's different.

To create a formula, select a structure that has an easily measurable volume, such as a phone booth or a small automobile, like a Volkswagen.

Next, see how much meat will fit in this structure. Buying actual food-grade meat in quantities sufficient to fill either of these structures would be cost-prohibitive, not to speak of the logistics of how best to dispose of it when complete.

Instead, recruit members of your class, various collegiate sporting teams, cheerleaders, etc. These folks are all made of meat, so to speak, and will be a suitable replacement. Each package is also already generally well aware of its own weight, saving the effort of individual weighing and tabulation.

You may have to employ the use of a solvent, such as alcohol, to achieve the optimum packing density. Chemistry is not an obvious complement to structural engineering, but trust us, it works.

Once you establish the amount of meat that will fit into your subject structure, you may develop a simple formula based on a multiplier/divisor that may be used on a structure of any other known volume.

Good luck, and keep engineering!

I told you an engineer would know how to do it.
