Please Help!!!!!!!!! The radius of the base of a cylinder is 3 feet. Is the volume of the cylinder a linear or nonlinear function of the height of the cylinder?

    Whats the difference between a linear and a nonlinear function?

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

    \[V=\pi r^2h\]

    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 non-linear. what is the exponent on h, the height?

    I really didn't understand any of that

    Oh, so squared and cubic stuff are nonlinear?

    exactly so what about h inopeki?

    That is linear

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

    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
