Volume of a cone is , Where r is the radius of the base and h is the height of the cone.
Volume of a sphere is .
To find the ratio, divide the cone formula by the sphere formula:
Factor out from the top and bottom:
So your final answer is:
I got this question for homework and I'm not sure how to do it:
a) Find the ratio between the volume of a cone and the volume of a sphere.
b) Find the values of r and h if the ratio in a) = 1/3.
Thanks a lot.
