The volume of a cone is,Originally Posted by freswood
When the depth is what is its radius at that time? Below is the picture of the section of the cone, note the similar triangles.
I haven't really done much with volumes in the past, and this question is driving me insane.
A container is in the shape of an inverted cone of height 80cm and diameter 40 cm.
Find the volume, Vcm^3, of water in the container when the depth is x cm.
Thanks heaps for your help!
