# Minimum volume of cone that can be circumscribed about a sphere of radius R

Given a sphere of radius R, The task is to find out the minimum volume of the cone that can be circumscribed about it.

**Examples:**

Input:R = 10Output:Volume of cone = 8373.33Explanation:Radius of cone = 14.14 and Height of cone = 40, Volume of cone = So, volume = 8373.33Input:R = 4Output:Volume of cone = 535.89

**Approach:**

we have given a sphere of radius R inscribed in Cone. We need to find out the radius and height of the cone to find out the volume of the cone.

- In triangle AOE and ALC compute sin(X) i.e. For triangle AOE and for triangle ALC

- Now, From equating both we get

- Insert the value of H in Volume i.e. and for volume to be minimum .

- From the above equation we get and putting this value in H we get

- Hence, applying the formula of volume of cone and putting and we get the desired result.
