## Question 1: Use the Applet above to find the volume.

What is the volume of a cylinder with a radius of 1 and a height of 2?

## Question 2: Use the Applet above to find the volume.

What is the volume of a cylinder with a radius of 2 and a height of 1?

## Question 3: How does the answer in question 1 compare with the answer in question 2.

Even though both cylinders use lengths of 1 and 2, they do not have the same volume. Which one has a larger volume and why?

## Question 4:

Design a cylinder that has a volume approximately 30 . State the dimensions (radius and height).

## Question 5:

What happens to the volume of a cylinder if you multiple each dimension by 3 (a scale factor of 3)? Use the applet above. Start off with 1 as the radius and 1 as the height. The volume given is which is approximately 3.14. Apply a scale factor of 3 to both the radius and height. What specifically happens to the volume?
