A linear is a straight line that can be made on a graph and a nonlinear is not straight

I would say its nonlinear, but i dont know.

Yeah, but what makes it linear, TT?

if the dependent variable is only to the 1st power, it's linear if it's to a higher power, it's nonlinear. what is the exponent on h, the height?

anikate, since r is to the power of 2 its nonlinear.

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
but they ask about the relation to the height, so since h is to the first, this is a linear relationship if they asked about the relation to the radius you would be right

\[V= f(h)= 9 \pi h\] in this case pi r^2 acts like a constant and the volume varies linearly with h
