Round manholes provide access to underground utilities or passages. The heavy round cover just fits into a heavy ring. Things could be square or rectangular, but with a round cover, the cover cannot fall into the hole in any position. With a square or rectangular cover, there is a way to situate the cover so it partially covers the hole and then can fall in. Not so with the circular one.

It is impossible to drop a round lid into a smaller round hole.It is because round is the only shape that if turned or flipped over, it still retains the same length across its center. If you used a square, rectangle, triangle, hexagon or any other shaped lid, it could be rotated and fall into the hole.This can't happen with the round shape.And I have worked for the phone company for the last 22 years, yes it is a pain to get a rectangular lid that weighs 100 lbs, out of a 6 foot deep hole by yourself.Two more correct answersA round cover can be moved by rolling it on its edge.

The reason that manhole covers are round, and not square, is because a square cover could, when placed at the right angle, fall through the square hole in the ground. A circle, however, is the same diameter no matter where you measure it, and it cannot fir through a hole the same size and shape, no matter how hard anyone tried.

A bundle of Shingles will cover roughly 33 square feet. A square of Shingles (3 Bundles) will cover 100 square feet.

A square one would fall through itself but with a round one this is impossible

Round manhole covers are preferred over square ones because they cannot fall into the hole they are covering regardless of their orientation, making them safer for workers and pedestrians. Additionally, round covers are easier to move since they can be rolled, while square covers need to be lifted and aligned to be placed back.

At least: pi*0.75*0.75 = 1.767 square meters rounded to 3 decimal places The circumference of the table is: 1.5*pi

18/51 = 0.353 hours (to 3 decimal places only).

Not all are round- but a round cover that fits a round hatch cannot fall through its own hole when it is tilted. A square or rectangle CAN fall through its own hole. Think about this- if you dropped the cover into a septic tank- would you REALLY want to have to go in there and find it? Round is good.

That really depends on the size and weight of the bale, as well as the depth of the cover. One large round bale of hay can be unrolled for at least 20 or 30 yards with a depth of 8 inches, where as a small square will only cover 5 square feet of area if all the flakes were put together in a square or rectangle.

Round manhole covers are generally used over square manholes because they cannot fall through the manhole openings. There is a chance that if square manhole covers are used they can be turned at an angle and fall through the manhole opening. Round manhole covers can be moved more easily as well.
