Estimating Marbles in a Beaker
Below are given the dimensions of the beaker (diameter and height), as
well as the diameter of a marble. With this information, make
a better guess at how many marbles are contained in the beaker.
Diameter of beaker base: 127 mm.
Height of beaker: 188 mm.
Average diameter of a marble: 14 mm.
The point of the assignment is not just to get the right number of marbles, the point is to explain how you approached the problem and got your answer. What approximations or assumptions did you make? Why did you make those approximations?
