# 030 Review Problem - Amount of molten glass in a lump

**Problem 30**

Window glass formerly was made by gathering a lump of molten glass on the end of a hollow rod and blowing it into the form of large hollow cylinder about 6 ft. long and 1-1/2 ft. in diameter. This was cut longitudinally and then placed in an oven and heated until it softened, when it was flattened out into plates and cut into desired sizes. If this plate was 0.12 in. thick, find the amount of glass in the original lump.

**Solution 30**

$V = \pi DLt$

$V = \pi (1\frac{1}{2})(6)(\frac{0.12}{6})$

$V = 0.282\,743 ~ \text{ft.}^3$ *answer*
