A nuclear cooling tower is in the shape of a hyperboloid (that is, a hyperbola rotated around its conjugate axis). The equation of the hyperbola is (x^2/3600)- (y^2/6400)=1. If the center of the tower (the narrowest part) is 70 ft above the ground, what is the diameter (in ft) of the circular base?
