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

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
