QA – Placement Quizzes | Mensuration 3D | Question 15
The radii of two cones are in the ratio 2:1, their volumes are equal. Find the ratio of their heights.
Explanation: Let the radius and height of the two cones be R, H and r, h respectively such that R:r = 2:1. Then,
Volume of the cone C = 1/3 * π * R² * H
Volume of the cone c = 1/3 * π * r² * h
1/3 * π * R² * H = 1/3 * π * r² * h
H:h = r²:R² = 1²:2² = 1:4.
