Truncated cone

Calculate the height of the rotating truncated cone with volume V = 794 cm3 and a base radii r1 = 9.9 cm and r2 = 9.8 cm.

Correct answer:

h =  2.6 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

r1=9.9 cm r2=9.8 cm V=794 cm3  V=13πh(r12+r1 r2+r22)  h=3 Vπ (r12+r1 r2+r22)=3 7943.1416 (9.92+9.9 9.8+9.82)=2.6 cm

can u explain why you do (r2 + rxR + R2) in the first step

Fine math problem! Go ahead!

but to prove formula, you need to know how to solve integral

need to solve a cubic equation, as obtained above, to find rises in heights... integral
