Largest cone that can be inscribed within a cube

Given here is a cube of side length **a**. We have to find the height and the radius of the biggest right circular cone that can be inscribed within it.**Examples**:

Input: a = 6Output: r = 4.24264, h = 6Input: a = 10Output: r = 7.07107, h = 10

**Approach**:

Let height of the cone = **h**.

and, radius of the cone = **r**.

From the diagram, we can clearly understand that,

**r = a/√2****h = a**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ Program to find the biggest cone` `// inscribed within a cube` `#include <bits/stdc++.h>` `using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to find the radius of the cone` `float` `coneRadius(` `float` `a)` `{` ` ` `// side cannot be negative` ` ` `if` `(a < 0)` ` ` `return` `-1;` ` ` `// radius of the cone` ` ` `float` `r = a / ` `sqrt` `(2);` ` ` `return` `r;` `}` `// Function to find the height of the cone` `float` `coneHeight(` `float` `a)` `{` ` ` `// side cannot be negative` ` ` `if` `(a < 0)` ` ` `return` `-1;` ` ` `// height of the cone` ` ` `float` `h = a;` ` ` `return` `h;` `}` `// Driver code` `int` `main()` `{` ` ` `float` `a = 6;` ` ` `cout << "r = " << coneRadius(a) << ", "` ` ` `<< "h = " << coneHeight(a) << endl;` ` ` `return` `0;` `}` |
