Please PLEASE read the following and solve this problem:
I am basically doing a frustrum of a cone, what i need to do in the question is re-arrange the volume for cone to make H the subject and substitute this H in the Surface area formula for cone. If u get what i mean!!!!!!!!! Now the problem is this, i made a diagram of a truncated cone, and put some dotted lines to make it into a whole cone.........I said the dotted lines to be as 1/3 of the radius and height. SO when i did the volume expression it came something like this:
V = 1/3*pi*r^2*h - 1/3*pi*r^2/9*h/3. ........................(i)
When u simplify the equation it come up something like this:
h = 81V/26*pi*r^2
I had to make volume fixed to 600.
so: h = 1869 / pi*r^2.
Now this is where the problem comes:
Now when i substitute this equation into surface area as i said i had to:
S.A. = Pi*R*S where S= square root of H^2 + R^2
S.A. = Pi*r Square root of 1869/pi*r^2 + r^2
Well here it is, if i have already subtracted 1/3 of height and radius in the volume formula in equation (i)
, then do i need to do, divide remaining r^2 with 3??? Or have i already subtracted the r and h in equation (i)
S.A. = Pi*r/3 square root of 1869/Pi*r^2 + r^2/3 if u get what i mean???
Please try to quickly explain this, as i need to hand this in by tommarrow!!!!!!
Following your reasoning the height and radius are related to the original height and radius so no further manipulation is needed. However I came up with this:
A = square root of [(6561 V^2 / 676 pi r^3) + r^2]
Don't worry too much about the values I used, I kept it exact instead of rounding, but I think that you failed to square the term for h in the area formula.
Sadly, I doubt that this is what your teacher is looking for anyway.
