Unformatted text preview: Let h = the height of the water cone, in feet. Let V = the volume of the water cone, in cubic feet. • Express the key formula. We need the formula for the volume of a right circular cone of height (or altitude) h and base radius r . V = 1 3 ± r 2 h As it stands, we are expressing V as a function of two variables, r and h . However, r and h are not independent here, because the shape of the tank forces a relationship between them....
