Subject: Re: Re: Vol formula for a sphere, cone & cylinder
It is worth pointing out that a cone with height=diameter of the base of cylinder and with the diameters of the bases equal, then the volume of s cone is 1/3 of the cylinder. This means that a cone with these dimensions are 1/2 of a sphere with similiar dimensions. To prove: 1/3xpixr^2x2r = (1/2)x4/3xpixr^3 2/3 x pixr^3 = 2/3 x pixr^3
