Question of The Day12-07-2021

The Semi vertical angle of a cone is, θ = cos-1 0.96. If the base radius of the cone is 7 cm, the what is the volume of the cone?

Correct Answer : a ) 1232 cm2

Explanation :

According to the question

The Semi vertical angle of a cone is θ = cos-1 0.96

⇒cos θ = 0.96

⇒cos θ=$${96 \over 100}={24 \over 25}$$

We know that,

cos θ$${Base \over Hypotenuse}$$

⇒ Base (AD) = 24 units

⇒ Hypotenuse = 25 units

⇒ 252 = 242 + DC2

⇒ DC = 7 units

⇒ Radius of the base of cone (DC) = 7 cm

⇒ 7 units = 7 cm

⇒ Height of the cone (24 units) = 24 cm

volume of cone=$${1 \over 3}$$r2h

⇒ Substituting the values

$${1 \over 3}*{22 \over 7}*7*7*24$$

⇒ 1232 cm2

Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
