Area of pipe when thickness of wall inner radius of pipe and length of pipe is given?
For a pipe of uniform radius and thickness, I believe the total surface area would be the Outside surface + Inside surface+ 2 times the surface of the ends. The inside radius(r inner ), pipe thickness (t), and pipe length (L) are given. So you only need to find the outside radius (R out ) and then all areas can be calculated. The outside radius should be R out =r inner +t. And note the perimeter of a circle is 2*pi*Radius and area of an annular region (in this case the ends of the pipe) is A= pi*(R out 2 - r inner 2 ) For the outer pipe surface: A out =2*pi*(R out )*L For the inner pipe surface: A inner =2*pi*(r inner )*L For each pipe end: A end = pi*(R out 2 - r inner 2 ) So the total surface area of the pipe would be: A out + A inner +2* A end Or: A total =2*pi*(R out )*L+2*pi*(r inner )*L+ 2*pi*(R out 2 -r inner 2 ) = pi*[ 2*L*(R out + r inner )]+(R out 2 - r inner 2 ) = 2*pi*[ L*( r inner +t + r inner )]+(( r inner +t ) 2 - r inner 2 )] =2*pi*(t+L)(t+2*r inner ) Hopefully that is correct and helps.

Like untwisting the paper tube in a roll of toilet paper. They corrode and cannot be unscrewed. Replacing it may be a problem. The tube has a fine thread and is old enough that very few places if any carry a replacement. You will probably have to open the wall up so that you can make another type of connection depending on what you find.

How do you remove roots from a drain pipe?
There are several methods of removing tree roots from a sewer pipe. The standard method is mechanical : a "Sewer Snake" which cuts at the tree root incursion with a rotating blade. Neither chemicals nor water jetting are effective on many root blockages. Cutting the roots and sealing or replacing the pipes (or joints) is the most effective solution. Where this is impractical, pipes may be relined in some cases. Water Jetting is only a useful application for "soft" stoppages or for scouring lines clean to restore full flow as originally designed. Chemicals may reduce the need for recleaning but do not guarantee clear pipes. Herbicides may exacerbate problems by encouraging new root growth. The solution is to remove all plants above and around the line, chop out existing roots and replace or re-line the pipe. PVC pipes are resistant to root growth, assuming all joints are sealed properly.
