A question related to this page:

I would like to see the differential calculus that shows that the max
volume in a cylinder is when the radius and height of the cylinder are
in a certain proportion such as when h=2r of the cylinder. I am an
engineer and I am embarrassed to even ask. It has been awhile since
I've studied differential calculus.

I won't sleep well until I get the answer!!!!
