# Equilateral cone

We pour so much water into a container with the shape of an equilateral cone, the base of which has a radius r = 6 cm, that one-third of the volume of the cone is filled. How high will the water reach if we turn the cone upside down?

Dear Sirs! Considering English is not my mother tongue, I hope I understood the word problem as well as the solution you have provided (since there's no image in solution I hope that I understood the labels of the variables that you've uses in the solution) . .. Anyway, I think there is an error in the given solution. .. When you turn the cone upside down, the shape of the cone part filled with water is a truncated cone with the height h

_{2}, so it's volume can not be calculated using formula that you have used, that is V_{1}=1/3 * pi * r^{2}* h_{2}. .. This isn't the formula for the volume of a truncated cone. ..Best regards
