A cylinder has a height of 16 cm and a radius of 5 cm. A cone has a height of 12 cm and a radius of 4 cm. If the cone is placed inside the cylinder what is the volume of the air space surrounding the cone inside the cone inside the cylinder
Volume of a Cylinder: πr² * h Work: 3.14 * 5² = 78.5 78.5 * 16 = 1,256 Since a cone is 1/3 the volume of a cylinder, all you have to do is find 2/3 the volume of a cone to find the air space surrounding the cone inside the cylinder. 1,256 * 2/3 = 837.33333....... I hope this helped!
