6.2: A Modeling Example: Counting Ping Pong Balls
Suppose you have a cylinder of height
A lower bound for this problem is found as follows. Define the following variables:

NL− Lower bound on the number of balls that fit into the cylinder. 
Vcyl− The volume of the cylinder. 
Vcube− The volume of a cube that encloses a single ball.
The lower bound
Exercise 11
You are given the following values:

d=1.54in 
b=8in 
h=14in
Type commands at the command line prompt to compute
Exercise 12
Create an mfile to solve Exercise 11.
To complicate your problem, suppose that you have not been given values for
One way to automate the computation of
Exercise 13
Add a for loop to your mfile from Exercise 12 to compute
Exercise 14
Modify your mfile from Exercise 13 to plot
Exercise 15
Modify your mfile from Exercise 13 to compute
