## Mock Final Exam!

**The Mock Final is now available!**

Thanks everyone, who came out and wrote today! We had about thirty people in total. The last writer finished at approximated 14:50pm. It seems like the final will take approximately three hours. Please attempt the mock final, it is the best preparation for the real final.

## MAT B41 — Week 11

## Homework #5 Question 4

Consider a solid ball of radius . Cut a cylindrical hole, through the center of the ball, such that the remaining body has height . Call this the donut . Use Cavalieri’s principle to calculate the volume of . Calculate the volumes of and .

Several students have asked what looks like. Here are some pictures that I found to illustrate the concept. The donut is the region between the red sphere and blue cylinder. The golden balls below show various views of the donut. The donut should fit between the two planes and , so that it has total height .

## Malin Christersson’s Cube Toy

I was looking through the Geogebra site and found this lovely applet Orthographic Projection by Malin Christersson.

This is a lovely tool for investigating one of my favourite facts about hexagons:

*The area maximizing orthogonal projection of a cube is the regular hexagon*.

It turns out that Malin has tonnes of awesome geometry stuff online!

- Hyperbolic tiler!
- Pythagora’s Tree!
- A whole Tumblr full of great animations!

Awesome math art!
