CSE 231, Fall 2007 Programming Project 08 Assignment Overview This assignment will give you more experience on the use of functions. This assignment is worth 50 points (5.0% of the course grade) and must be completed and turned in before 11:59 on Monday, October 29, 2007. Background You are a new graduate form MSU Engineering College and you got a job working for Corning Glass works. They make hundreds of different glasses and the manager wants you to construct a program that can be used to keep track of the glasses and automate the calculation of box size and weight for a dozen glasses. The fluid volume (oz.) they need to hold and the height (in.) of the fluid in the glass specify the product. For example, a glass may be specified to hold 8 ounces of fluid and that the height of the fluid in the glass will be 3 inches. Other characteristics such as the glass’s exterior dimensions (height and diameter) must be inferred from the fluid volume and fluid height. In addition, the glass thickness is specified and assumed to be uniform for the sides and the bottom of the glass cylinder. Because the products can have different densities a property of density must also be used which will impact the weight of the glass (necessary to calculate the weight of a box of glasses). For the purposes of this assignment glasses will be cylinders, i.e. a boring design.
