Top-open tank

The top-open tank has the shape of a truncated rotating cone, which stands on a smaller base. The tank's volume is 465 m3, the radii of the bases are 4 m and 3 m. Find the depth of the tank.

Correct answer:

h =  12 m

Step-by-step explanation:

r1=4 m r2=3 m V=465 m3  V=31πh(r12+r1 r2+r22)  h=π (r12+r1 r2+r22)3 V=3.1416 (42+4 3+32)3 465=12 m
