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
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
click here to see the equation solved for H
H = 1.59 cm
The height of the cone is 1.59 cm.
