A cone has a volume of 300 units3, and a cylinder has a volume of 100 units3. Is it possible that the cylinder and the cone have the same height and same radius? Why or why not?


  1. Answer and Explanation:
    We already know that,
    Vol. Of cy. Is πr2h
    Vol. Of a cone is 1/3πr2h
    Therefore we can conclude that the vol. of a cone is one third the volume of a cylinder, give that their height and radius is same .
    Meaning if the volume of the cylinder is 300 square units, then the volume of the former cone will be:
    1/3 of 300 , that is 100 square units
