Calculating the Dimensions and Volume to Create a Small Container

Submitted : Spring 2017

Calculus can be used in many fields to solve many problems, from the most complex to the simplest. For example, we can use Calculus properties, such as Integral, to calculate the dimensions of a small container that needs an exact volume. To fertilize the pot plants, it is necessary an amount of 15ml of a certain type of fertilizer (NPK) added to 600ml of water, a total of 615ml. Then from a chosen container format, plus its final volume and knowledge of the area of Mathematics and Calculus, we can calculate the exact measurements to obtain the final volume successfully. And so, create a container with exact 615ml to be able to fertilize the pot plants successfully.
