What type of graph used to show minimum surface area?

Recommended Posts

You can calculate the volume and area using revolution, possibly the washer/disk method. To show that you have the minimum, you can plot surface area on the y-axis vs something you are keeping constant, say volume, or mass, on the x-axis.
