Hi, this is my first post and most certainly not my last. I'm a young Mechanical Engineering major and I love math and physics, but on with my topic...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm in Calc I and we've been assigned an extra-credit group project where to do present either a related rate or an optimization problem. Everyone in my group is some sort of engineering major and we're all fairly competent with math and physics. We want to do something different that's not in our book; if we have to maximize the volume of one more box, we'll hang ourselves. I was hoping to get some suggestions for some fun, but challenging optimization problems (or related rates if you can think of very cool ones). Problems that involve physics are preferred.

Thanks.

Oh and don't take the fun out of it and post answers, but relevant formulas are welcome. =)
