Hi,
as far as I understand you there are several solutions to that.
Which one do you mean (see attached image)?
This is a sphere inscribed in a cone problem. Given a right circular cone of a given size and shape, what is the radius of a sphere inscribed in the cone? Also, how does the ratio of the sphere's volume vary with the shape of the cone? Any suggestions? Thanks
To galactus:
This does make sense... Do you think it relates to 3-D all the same, for the sphere and cone though?? I mean in this case a radius will still be a radius? I just have trouble finding the contruent triangles in the sphere and cone idea because then the congruuent triangles would slices of the cone?? Maybe I'm not seeing it correctly. Thanks.
