Hint:
Volume of spherical cone =2/3piR^2h
Hello ! I am working on this problem for about an hour now. I have researched for the formulas, only to find out that there is no formula for this given only 2 radii.
Find the volume of a spherical cone in a sphere of radius 17 cm. if the radius of its zone is 8 cm.
Thank you !
1. To calculate the volume of a cone you must know the length of the radius of the base circle and the length of the height of the cone.
2. Draw a sketch of the situation.
3. Let r denote the radius of the base cicle of the cone, R the radius of the sphere and h the height of the cone. Then
