Math Journal What is the relationship between the volume of a cone and the volume of a cylinder with the same base and height? Suggest a formula for the volume of a cone.
Answer: The relationship between the volume of a cone and the volume of a cylinder with the same base and height is the volume of the cone is one-third the volume of the cylinder.

Explanation:
We know that the volume of the cylinder is  V = πr²h
the volume of the cone V=1/3hπr².
Then, The relationship between the volume of a cone and the volume of a cylinder,
with the same base and height is the volume of the cone is one-third the volume of the cylinder.
And, $$\frac{1}{3}$$ πr²h = $$\frac{1}{3}$$ πr²h
Hence, The volume of the cone and the volume of the cylinder is equal when their respective base and height are equal.

So, The area of the cone’s curved surface is 3,830 mm²

Question 19.
Martha used a filter in the shape of a cone to filter sand from a liquid. The volume of liquid that the filter can hold is 66 cubic centimeters. The height of the filter is 6 centimeters. What is the diameter of the filter? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.
Answer: The diameter of the filter is  7 cm.

Explanation:
Given, V = 66 cm³
the volume of the cone V=1/3hπr².
r = ? , h = 6 cm.
66 = $$\frac{1}{3}$$ 6 × r² × 3.14
r² = $$\frac{66 × 3}{6 × 3.14}$$
r² =10.5 cm
r = 3.24 cm
The radius of the filter  is 3.24 cm

Then, the diameter d = 2r = 2 × 3.24 = 6.48 cm = 7 cm
So, The diameter of the filter is  7 cm.
