As I said in my post... I think they do not have the x2 in the formula.
I did indeed see that. To find the volume for a cylinder it's pi times (r squared) times height, not pi times (r times 2) times height.As I said in my post... I think they do not have the x2 in the formula.
Yes and no. It's working as designed but the design has some flaws.Agreed - this is exactly what I am seeing.
So, what I'm hearing is the "resize to mold" feature is working as designed in that it will not adjust the oils (and also therefore the lye) in a recipe if any variable - water:lye ratio, superfat, FO - are not at minimum levels. Meaning, it will only give accurate results if all variables are set to minimum/zero levels. Fair enough. I can work with anything if I understand how it's designed to work.
I agree, the volume calc for the cyl. is hosed. I also think you are correct in your assumption of the fomula.For cylinders, I think they have figured the volume of a cylinder based on the formula for finding half the area of a circle. That is, "pi r squared divided by 2 times height", instead of "pi r squared times height". Or...they have the formula correct, but entered the value for 1/2 of π ...which would be even more weird.
yay! Thank you!I've posted this info in the soapmakingfriend forum and referenced this post. Hopefully it will be seen by the developers.
