An inverted cone with base radius and height is full of water. The water is poured into a tall cylinder whose horizontal base has radius of . What is the height in centimeters of the water in the cylinder?
Solution
The volume of a cone is where is the base radius and is the height. The water completely fills up the cone so the volume of the water is .
The volume of a cylinder is so the volume of the water in the cylinder would be .
We can equate these two expressions because the water volume stays the same like this . We get and .
So the answer is
