A group of engineers is building a parabolic satellite dish whose shape will be formed by rotating the curve *y* = *ax*^{2} about the *y*-axis. If the dish is to have a 10-ft diameter and a maximum depth of 3ft, find the value of *a* and the surface area *S* of the dish. (Round the surface area to two decimal places.)

#### Top Answer

Value of a = 3/25 = 0.12 Surface... View the full answer
