Question: A spherical bubble of radius 1 is surmounted by a smaller, hemispherical bubble, which in turn is surmounted by a still smaller hemispherical bubble, and so forth, until n chambers including the initial sphere are formed. What is the maximum height of any bubble tower with n chambers?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok, The answer is 1 + sqrt(n) , but I can't figure out how that is possible. Any help would be appreciated.
