EXAMPLE 2.-Required the solid content of a sphere, whose diameter A B = 254 inches. 25.53 x .5236 = 8682.00795 cubic inches • 1728 = 5.0243 cubic feet nearly. PROBLEM VIII. To find the Convex Surface and Solid Content of the Segment of a Sphere. Rule 1.-Multiply the height of the segment by the whole circumference of the sphere, and the product is the curve surface. RULE 2.-Add the square of the height to three times the square of the radius of the base ; multiply that sum by the height, and by .6236, and the product is the solid content. EXAMPLE 1.-The diameter A B of the sphere A B CD = 20 inches; what is the convex surface of that segment of it, whose height E D = 8 inches ? EXAMPLE 2.--The base F G of the segment F DG = 18 inches, and perpendicular ED= 8, what is the solid content? 82 = 64., and 92 X 3 = 243, then 243 + 64 x 8 x .5236 = 1285.9616 cubic inches = 1728 = .7441 cubic feet nearly. EXAMPLE 3.-Suppose A B C D to be a sugar pan, and that the diameter of the mouth A B is 4 feet, the depth D C being 25 inches, how many imperial gallons will it contain ? 252 = 625, and 242 X 3= 1728, then 1728 +625 x 25 x .5236=30800.77 277.274 =111.084 gallons nearly. PROBLEM IX. To find the Solidity of a Spheroid. Rule.-Multiply the square of the revolving axis by the fixed axis, and by 5236, and the product will be the solidity. ExamPLE 1.-Required the solid content of the prolate spheroid ABCD, whose fixed axis A C is 50, and revolving axis B D 30. B 302 X 50 X 5236 = 23562 the solidity. EXAMPLE 2.-What is the solid content of an oblate spheroid, the fixed axis being 30, and revolving axis 50 ? 502 x 30 x .5236 = 39270 the solid content. PROBLEM X. To find the Solidity of the Segment of a Spheroid when the base is circular or parallel to the revolving axis. Rule.-From triple the fixed axis, take double the height of the segment; multiply the difference by the square of the height, and by .5236; then say, as the square of the fixed axis is to the square of the revolving axis, so is the former product to the solidity. EXAMPLE 1.-. Required the solid content of the segment A B C; whose height B r is 10; the revolving axis E F being 40, and fixed axis B D 25. B 25 x 3 10 x 2 = 55 and 55 x 102 x .5236 = 2879.8; then, as 252 : 402 2879.8 : 7372.3 nearly. !
