Take a regular torus (doughnut) shaped object and cut a vertical slice through it at line A-A1(Fig1).
Now look at the cross section formed(Fig2).
Is it possible to calculate the volume of the original Torus? Prove your results.
The "tube" diametrer = 12mm with a chord 0f 2mm
From this we can calc. that the chord in the outside
circle is 11.92mm in, and we know that it is 50mm long
then tanA =25/11.92
180- 64.5*2 = 51
tan51 = 25/B
20.24+11.92 = 32.16
outer radius = 32.16
32.16 - 12 = 20.16
inner radius = 20.16
Torus volume = 2pisq * radius from center to tube center * tube radius squared
volume = 19.74 * (20.16+6) * 6sq
= 18590 cubic centemeters
