List and description of the requirements
Design Flowchart or pseudo code
User Manual as well as your Java code.
The User Manual can be a simple Word document, with screenshots, that explains how to run your application. Your mark will depend both on the program quality, and the quality of the User's Manual.
Here are some more detailed guidelines about the User's Manual:
It does not need to be long, probably not more than 10 pages, including screenshots. Write it at the expected user's level - not too technical. Detail all the functionality that the application provides. Best, structure you presentation top-down way.
For each function, show what it its purpose and sample execution, with a screenshot.
After each calculation, the collected information and the calculated volume will be saved into a file (or database). You will then add a function to retrieve the input and calculation history from the file or database and display it on the screen.
