The height

Answer :

Given: Height of cone = 30 cm


To find: Height above the base of section.


Formula Used:


The volume of cone =


Explanation:



Given the height of the cone, H = 30 cm


Let the small cone which is cut off at a height ‘h’ from the top.


Let the radius of the big cone be R cm, and the small cone is r cm.


The volume of the big cone,


The volume of the smaller cone,


Given according to the question,



………… (1)


Now, in ∆KCB and ∆KDM


CKB = DKM (common)


KCB = KDM = 90°


∆KCB~∆KDM (by AA-similarity)



Putting the value in equation (1), we have






Thus the height above the base at which the section is made = 30-10 = 20 cm
