Unformatted text preview: finding the volume of a cubic shape. Find the area of the base and then multiply that by the height. The equation to find the area of a circle is πr 2 . So the equation to find the volume is πr 2 h. The circle in example 3 has a radius of 6 in. and is 10 in. tall. Its volume is 360π in 3 * V = π(6 in.) 2 (10 in.) So to find the height (or how far the base circle is being translated) I filled in the parts of the equation I knew and solved for the height: πr 2 h = 1440π in. 3 π (6 in.) 2 h = 1440π in. 3 or. . (6 in.) 2 h = 1440 π (36 in. 2 ) h = 1440π in. 3 or. . 36 in. 2 (h) = 1440 So, what # of inches multiplied by 36 in. 2 would = 1440 in. 2 ? 36h = 1440 h = 40 in. (36 in. 2 ) (40 in.) π = 1440π in. 3 The height (or distance the circle translated) is 40 in. 6in 6 in. 10in 40 in....
