    volume = 1/3* pi *r^2*h|dw:1352740094367:dw| can you find h?

    nop you used 50 in calculations.. as its not the height in this case.. can u see the diagram i drew?

    yes but now i'm confused on what to do . can you type the equation for me and i will solve ?

    well u first have to find the h.. h is the perpendicular height and its not given.. formula for cone is this. volume = 1/3* pi *r^2*h

    ok.. half is right .. the place where u had put 50 that is wrong. its not 50

    so 50^2 + 30 ^2 = c^2 ?

    not exactly.. the slanting height is "c" the base is "a" and height is "b"..

    so c^2=a^2+b^2 c=50, a= 30 , b= h can you find h now?

    yes h^2 = 1600.. now take square root to find h.

    good.. this is your h now.. volume = 1/3* pi *r^2*h h=40, r =30 now plug it in formula.
