Hello, GAdams!

Since , we have: .

(c) Find the ratio of the volumes of the cone and the hemisphere.

The volume of a hemisphere is: .

The ratio is: .

The volume of a cone is confusing me:

I can't see how you got from 1/3 * pi * sq.rt3r to sq.rt3/3 * pi * r^3 - Jul 8th 2007, 10:15 AMjanvdl
I tried googling for the formulas in a), but i struggled to find them. So i couldn't prove that formula. I think i struggled to find the hemisphere one.

So if then just plug that in like Soroban did.
