Capitol Records Building

Mathematic Equation

Surface Area= π • d • h + 2 • π • r^2

Surface Area= 151 • π • 58 + 2 • π • 29^2

Surface Area= 151 • π • 58 + 2 • π • 841

Surface Area= 474.4 • 58 + 2 • π • 841

Surface Area= 27,514.1 + 2 • π • 841

Surface Area= 27,514.1 + 6.3 • 841

Surface Area= 27,514.1 + 2 • 2,642.1

Surface Area= 27,514.1 + 5,284.2

Surface Area= 32,798 ft^2

Fun Facts

Extras!

If/When there is the big earthquake the Capitol Records Building is at risk because it does not have enough steel reinforcing beams. How many gallons of water could fit inside the Capitol Records building if it was hollow?

Volume= π • r^2 • h

Volume= π • 29^2 • 151

Volume= π • 841 • 151

Volume= π • 126,991

Volume= 398,954 ft^

3 398,954 feet^3 = 2,984,383 gallons

2,984,383 gallons of water can fit inside the Capitol Records Building
