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
