A cone is formed from a 300-degree sector of a circle of radius 18 by aligning the two straight sides. What is the result when the volume of the cone is divided by \(\pi\)?

We can find the radius of the cone thusly :

 

Perimeter of cone  =  Perimeter of sector shown

 

2 pi * ( radius of cone)   =  (300 / 360) 2 pi * 18

 

radius of cone  =  (5/6) * 18

 

radius of cone =   15

 

The height of the cone is   √ [ 18^2 - 15^2 ]  =  √99 =  3√11

 

So....the volume of the cone is

 

(1/3)  pi * (radius)^2 * height  =

 

(1/3) pi ( 15)^2 * 3√11     =    

 

pi * 225√11

 

Dividing this by pi gives

 

225√11
