Shipping Analysis Worksheet Crate – 22 inches long Lobster Box – 10 inches long 22 / 10 = 2.2 = 2 lobster boxes b. How much space in the crate does one lobster take? Volume = Length x Width x Height Crate volume - 22 * 17 * 13 = 4,862 inches Lobster Box volume – 10 * 5 * 3 = 150 cubic inches 150 / 4,862 = .0308 = 3% c. Consider how you determined how many lobsters can fit along the length of the crate. How many lobsters can be packed in one crate the same way as in the diagram? Hint: Draw on scratch paper a sketch of several lobsters (rectangles) in the crate, noting the dimensions for each lobster and the crate. This should tell you how to structure the problem. Crate – 22 x 17 x 13 Lobster crate – 10 x 5 x 3 L = 22 / 10 = 2.2 = 2 lobster boxes W = 17 / 5 = 3.4 = 3 lobster boxes H = 13 / 3 = 4.3 = 4 lobster boxes Volume – 2 * 3 * 4 = 24 lobster boxes 5. The crate weight limit is 25 kilograms. The contents of your crate weigh 50 pounds. Is the crate safe? Why or why not? Kilogram to pound – lb = kg * 2.2046 (Metric Conversion, 2012a) 25 * 2.2056 = 55.115 Yes, the crate is safe. The weight limit in pounds is 55.115 lbs and the contents are on 50 lbs. 6. To make sure the lobsters are cool but not frozen, you need to keep their temperature between 32 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit while they are being shipped. However, your driver, Igor, is from Europe, where they use Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. Please provide these temperatures in Celsius for Igor and round to the nearest degree. = - 32 / 1.8000 (Metric Conversion, 2012b) © Copyright 2015 College for America at Southern New Hampshire University.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
