Problem of the week


The tent shown in the figure (view from above) is 2 m high along its center line and its edges touch the ground.

\includegraphics[width=0.7\linewidth]{zelt.eps}

Determine the length $ x$ of a tent pole, the area $ A$ of the tarpaulin including the ground covered, and the volume $ V$ of the tent.


Answer:  
$ x = $ m
$ A = $ m$ ^2$
$ V = $ m$ ^3$

(The results should be correct to three decimal places.)
