MGMT 290D 12/4/09 Problem Description: Ballooning a Bedroom n Problem context ¨ Your friend who plays practical jokes is away ¨ You want to play a practical joke on your friend ¨ You plan to fill your friend’s room with balloons n Question: how many balloons should you purchase n The question will be answered by a program 44
MGMT 290D 12/4/09 Program Design n The problem is concerned with volumes ¨ Find out how many balloon volumes fit in a room volume n The balloon is approximated by a sphere ¨ volumesphere = 4/3 x PI x radius3 n The room is approximated by a box ¨ volumebox = length x width x height n Another issue: whether to use large or small balloons ¨ Large balloons take long to inflate, but fewer are needed ¨ Small balloons inflate quickly, but more are needed 55

MGMT 290D 12/4/09 Program Design (continued) n Essentials of the user story ¨ Query the user for the radius of the balloon ¨ Read the radius from the keyboard ¨ Compute the volume of one balloon ¨ Compute the volume of the bedroom n Note: dimensions of room are declared as constants ¨ Compute number of balloons needed to fill the bedroom ¨ Display the required number of balloons, with labels n Identify nouns and verbs to find objects and operations n Organize objects and operations into an algorithm 66

MGMT 290D 12/4/09 Program Implementation n First decision: write methods to compute volumes ¨ Rationale: methods allow computations to be reused n Second decision: store methods in separate classes ¨ Rationale: makes the program more modular n Three classes will be used to implement the program ¨ BalloonPrank : contains the main() driver method ¨ Sphere : library containing sphere methods ¨ Box : library containing box methods n Sphere.volume() : takes one argument (radius) n Box.volume() : takes three arguments (l, w, h) 1010
