# Right circular cone

The volume of a right circular cone is 5 liters. Calculate the volume of the two parts into which the cone is divided by a plane parallel to the base, one-third of the way down from the vertex to the base.

Result

V1 =  0.185 l
V2 =  4.815 l

1:3 is the ratio of heights
1:32 = 1:9 is the ratio of the area of base circles... due to two dimensional nature of the area.
1:33 = 1:27 is the ratio of volumes...  .. volume has three-dimensional nature ## Next similar math problems:
