A joke about a mathematician, an engineer and a physicist, discussing how to measure the volume of a cow.
The mathematician:.do a triple integral around the parametric cow
The physicist suggested placing the cow in a pool of water, …Arquimedes..
It is easy, said the engineer: make an assumption; the cow is a sphere of radius R that minimize the error.
