Re: Measure length without bend ?What do you mean by angle? What is the thickness of the pipe? What are the inside and outside diameters? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20131121 05:44:43
Re: Measure length without bend ?You also need the angle of the bend. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #4 20131121 05:46:14
Re: Measure length without bend ?That is all the information I can retrieve. The pipe is 11.76cm measuring from the top of the pipe to the bottom including the bend. I want the length of the pipe, as though the pipe is stretched out. Last edited by SuperLynx (20131121 05:46:56) #5 20131121 05:47:54
Re: Measure length without bend ?You mean, direct distance from one end to the other?

Re: Measure length without bend ?Top of the pipe to the bottom? What does that mean? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Measure length without bend ?Then you need at least the angle of the bend.

Re: Measure length without bend ?Is that to scale? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11 20131121 06:28:08
Re: Measure length without bend ?You'll have to say something else about this pipe eg diameter perhaps You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #12 20131121 13:40:07
Re: Measure length without bend ?The diameter is . If you really need the angle measurements, I'll get those numbers. I'm really hoping there is a genius way to figure it out without finding out the length of the object, which includes pipe length followed by the angle of the bend measurements.#13 20131121 14:46:28
Re: Measure length without bend ?I do not think that is helping enough. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Measure length without bend ?Will it bend?

Re: Measure length without bend ?The pipe? I guess it should. How does that help? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #16 20131121 15:26:24
Re: Measure length without bend ?Dunno, maybe we should ask Bender.

Re: Measure length without bend ?I asked him if that was to scale then I would just measure it. Since he is not providing any numbers a measurement would be better than a calculation.

Re: Measure length without bend ?The picture above is a picture in a paint program, so my bet is that it is definitely not to scale. An actual picture would do just fine, though.

Re: Measure length without bend ?I am not sure. But it also does not look like a pipe... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Measure length without bend ?The image is suppose to represent a pipe, use your imagination. I gave the measurements from top to bottom, the top would be the top of the pipe as seen in the image, the bottom, obviously the bottom of the pipe. Is there a formula to find out the length of the pipe as though the pipe did not have a bend, and was straight, or must the measurements of the bend of the pipe be known ? #21 20131121 16:56:28

Re: Measure length without bend ?Does the pipe represent a chord? Yes? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Measure length without bend ?sorry, I meant: Does the pipe represent an arc? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
