Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0height = length so if u make the Bases the same area, then Volume of a Cone = 1/3 Volume of the Cylinder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so seeing as you Cylinder has a volume of 24... what do you think the answer is for Volume of the Cone @nessababy12 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cylinder volume = PI * height * radius^2 24 = PI*4*1.382*1.382 Cone Volume = (PI * height * radius^2) / 3 I was just wondering IF cylinder volume were the same with DIFFERENT height and radius if cone volume would be different but according to the formulas, cone volume is always one third cylinder volume.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0q doesnt really say Max Volume either... just must fit "exactly inside"... something of smaller that 1/3 volume fits exactly inside, or if u put one in sideways, etc ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, with height = 4 and r = 1.382 volume = 24 (for cylinder) and 8 (for cone) with height = 6 and r = 1.1284 volume = 24 (for cylinder) and 8 (for cone) So, everything is juat the way you folks figured.
