One item is filed under this topic.    Page1/1            Water in a cone 2003-08-12 From Adrienne: Water is poured into a tank in the shape of an inverted right circular cone.ð The height of the tank is 8 m and its radius at the top is 4 m. a. Draw and label a picture to represent this situation.ð (I know how to do this) b. Identify all variable quantities. (h = 8m, r = 4m) c. Find an equation that relates the variable quantities, and reduce the number of variable quantities to two. I was thinking about the equation V = 1/3 pi r2 h, which is the Volume of a cone, but I am stumped as to how I am supposed to "reduce the number of variable quantities to two." Can you point me in the right direction? Answered by Penny Nom.
