A cylindrical can is made of two different materials: the side is made of

a material that costs 1 dollar per square foot, while the top and bottom are made of a

material that costs 2 dollars per square foot.

If the total volume of the can must be 1 cubic feet, find the dimensions of the can

that minimize cost.

Note: Justify your answer using calculus.
