Problem of the Day A model of a solid-steel machine tool is built to a scale of 1 cm = 10 cm. The real object will weigh 2500 grams. How much does the model, also made of solid steel, weigh? 2.5 g

Learn to make scale models of solid figures.

Vocabulary capacity

Corresponding edge lengths of any two cubes are in proportion to each other because the cubes are similar. However, volumes and surface areas do not have the same scale factor as edge lengths. Each edge of the 2 ft cube is 2 times as long as each edge of the 1 ft cube. However, the cube’s volume, or capacity, is 8 times as large, and its surface area is 4 times as large as the 1 ft cube’s.

Multiplying the linear dimensions of a solid by n creates n2 as much surface area and n3 as much volume. Helpful Hint

Additional Example 1A: Scaling Models That Are Cubes
A 3 cm cube is built from small cubes, each 1 cm on an edge. Compare the following values. A. the edge lengths of the large and small cubes 3 cm cube 1 cm cube 3 cm 1 cm Ratio of corresponding edges = 3 The edges of the large cube are 3 times as long as the edges of the small cube.

It takes 30 seconds for a pump to fill a cubic container whose edge measures 1 ft. How long does it take for the pump to fill a cubic container whose edge measures 2 ft? Find the volume of the 2 ft cubic container. V = 2 ft  2 ft  2 ft = 8 ft3 Set up a proportion and solve. 30 s 1 ft3 x 8 ft3 = Cancel units. 30  8 = x Multiply. 240 = x Calculate the fill time. It takes 240 seconds, or 4 minutes, to fill the larger container.
