How To: Fill a cone

Fill a cone

This is a very interesting instructional video on how to fill a cone. Pour oil into a cone of diameter 30 inches and depth 40 inches. Now find the volume of the oil as a function of its depth. Volume = 1 over 3 phi rsquare h. We don't know the height and depth of the oil poured into the cube. Draw similar right angled triangles. In one right angled triangle the height is 40 inches and in the other triangle it is h. Similarly the height is 40 inches and h respectively. Now rover h =15 over 40.r=3over 8 h. Now Volume of oil = 1over 3 phi 3over8h square h. The final answer is 3phi over 64 hcube cubed inches.
