Could someone please help me with this math question:

How many cylinders with a diameter of $7.44 cm$ and a height of $4.9 cm$ can fit in a cube of $1m \times 1m \times 1m$?

  • $\begingroup$ Can the cylinders be deformed or modified or broken? If not then it's a matter of cylinder stacking optimization and math. (Both of which are kind of off topic) $\endgroup$ – Z. Dailey Mar 26 '16 at 18:59
  • $\begingroup$ No they can't be broken or modified. I realise now that this question is better suited for the math stack exchange. Thanks anyhow :) $\endgroup$ – Timvr01 Mar 26 '16 at 19:03
  • $\begingroup$ No problem. And I bet they'll argue about the answer there too. ;) $\endgroup$ – Z. Dailey Mar 26 '16 at 19:04
