Small Group Activity: The Cone

Vector Calculus I 2022
  1. A right circular cone has circular base of radius R and height H, both measured in feet.
    1. What is the volume of the cone?
    2. Write down as many different integrals as you can for computing this volume.
    3. Do at least two of these integrals.
For some integrals, you may wish to use the fact that \[\cos(2\alpha)=2\cos^2\!\alpha-1=1-2\sin^2\!\alpha\]
