Aran moved a cone-shaped pile of sand that had a height of 6 ft and a radius of 3 ft. He used all of the sand to fill a cylindrical pit with a radius of 6 ft. How high did the sand reach in the pit? Use 3.14 to approximate pi and express your final answer in tenths.

You need the formulas for the volumes of a cone and a cylinder.

Correct. Here they are written in LaTeX which makes it easier to understand: \(\Large V_{cone} = \dfrac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h\) \(\Large V_{cylinder} = \pi r^2 h\)
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Now compare the formulas. If you have a cone and a cylinder, and they both have the same radius of the base and the same height, how do the volumes compare?
anonymous
  • anonymous
We don't know the height of the cylinder...Right/ I really don't understand
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Let me explain better what I was asking above. I'm not talking about your problem now. This is just in general. Let's say you have a cone and a cylinder. The cone and the cylinder have the same radius. The cone and the cylinder have the same height. What will be the difference in their volumes? To answer this question, just look at the formulas for the volumes. What is the only difference you notice between the volume formulas?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/3?

mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Exactly. The only difference is the 1/3 in the cone's volume formula. That means for the same height and radius of a cone and a cylinder, the cone's volume is 1/3 the size of the cylinder's volume.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Ok. Now let's deal with your problem.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Since you know the formula for the volume of a cone, you can use it to find the volume of the original pile of sand, which is a cone with given radius and height.

169.65?

Great. Now you need the formula for the volume of a cylinder. Write the formula with the info you know, r = 6, leave the height as h, and set it equal to the volume of the cone you just found above. Then solve for h.
anonymous
  • anonymous
3.14*6^2*h 3.14*36*h 113.04*h
anonymous
  • anonymous
169.65=113.04*h
anonymous
  • anonymous
169.65-113.04=56.61=h?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Nope it's wrong ummm I don't know...
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Wait. Just one question. In finding the volume of the cone, did you divide by 3 like the formula requires?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
|dw:1432765558766:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait... That's the answer? that doesn't make sense to me at all.. I got 49.2
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
No. The drawing above just shows the volume of the cone. I think when you calculated the volume of the cone, you forgot to divide by 3. The volume of the cone is 56.52 ft^3, not 169.56 ft^3
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh.. hehe sorry, my mistake...
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 56.52=113.04xh?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So h=0.5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Actually no.. I'm just confusing myself more and more
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Ok. Now for the volume of the cylinder: |dw:1432766341984:dw|
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Yes, your cylinder volume is correct. Now we equate the two volumes: |dw:1432766436217:dw|
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Your equation is correct. Now you need to solve for h. Since h is being multiplied by 113.04, you need to do the opposite operation, that is, you need to divide both sides by 113.04
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
|dw:1432766554551:dw|
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
h = 0.5 ft You are correct. Great job!

Remi has two cone-shaped containers with the same diameter. He will place the smaller container inside the larger one. Before he does this, he wants to fill the larger container with water so that it will be completely full but won’t spill when he places the smaller container inside. The diameter of both containers is 12 cm. The height of the smaller container is 6 cm, and the height of the larger container is 18 cm. What volume of water must Remi put in the large container? Use 3.14 to approximate pi and express your final answer in hundredths. 452.16
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
The volumes of the containers are: V(large) = 2034.72 cm^3 V(small) = 678.24 cm^3
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
The difference between the volumes is: 2034.72 cm^3 - 678.24 cm^3 = 1356.48 cm^3
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
How did you get 452.16 cm^3?
