Homework Help: Height of a Notch

  1. Jan 30, 2008 #1
    I have this homework problem:

    A block of metal has a 90 degree notch cut from its lower surface. The notched part rests on a circular cylinder of diameter 2.0cm. If the lower surface of the part is 1.3cm above the base plane, how deep is the notch?

    I can't think of how to solve it. Any suggsestions would be much appreciated.
