What's the angle between the sides? What's the ratio of the base circumference to the rim circumference?






What is the circumference of the circle represented by the moving bucket?




What is the difference in the radii of the top and bottom of the bucket?









How much bigger is the top diameter than the bottom, and can I use those measurements to find out how big of a circle it will roll in?


What would the plot of the position of a point on the rim as a function of time look like? What function would it be?






Describe the shape of the bucket as accurately as possible. (The dimensions of one floor tile should be provided / measured?


What is the circumference/area of the circle outlined by the rolling pail?






What's in the pail? How long will it go? How is the radius of curvature determined?

What is the diameter of the circle formed by the outer rims path compared to that of the inner rims?


Where must the bucket be placed to roll a circle with the black square at the center?
