Problema Solution

A cone has a volume V=1/3, where is the radius of the cone's base and H is the height of the cone. Find the height in centimeters of a cone with volume 60cm and radius 6 centimeters

Answer provided by our tutors

The formula for the volume of the code with radius r and height H is:

V = (1/3)r^2*pi*H

The following is given:

V = 60 cm^2

r = 6 cm

We need to find H.

Plug the values for V and r into the formula:

60 = (1/3)*6^2*pi*H

(1/3)*6^2*pi*H = 60

H = 1.59 cm

The height of the cone is 1.59 cm.
