The Cone and Parabola

I was interested in the relationship between the geometry of a right
cone (radius & height) and the simple parabolic equation: y=ax^2.
More precisely what is the relationship between the parameters and the
constant, ?a?.
I?ve worked up a solution and would like comments on it.
A PDF of the work can be downloaded here:
