3. A sphere with diameter 6 is inscribed into a squared box. What is the greatest stick that we can put between the sphere and the box?


I have attached a 2D view of a sphere in a square box. We can assume that the edges of the square act as tangents to the circle. Then maximum length of a stick that can be inserted between the sphere and the box will be equal to the radius of the circle = 3.

Corner right triangle that will be formed will have sides of length 3 each. But we cannot insert a stick of length equal to that of a hypotenuse because it will be blocked by the sphere. Hence maximum length possible is that of the edge of the triangle = radius of the circle = 3.
