#### Solution

Diameter of cannon ball = 28 cm
Radius of the cannon ball = 14 cm

Volume of ball =4/3 pir^3 = 4/3pixx(14)^3 "cm"^3

Diameter of base of cone = 35 cm

Radius of base of cone =35/2 "cm"

Let the height of the cone be h cm.

Volume of cone = 1/3pir^2h = 1/3pixx(35/2)^2xx"h"  "cm"^3

From the above results and from the given conditions,
Volume of ball = Volume of cone

Or,4/3pixx(14)^3 = 1/3pixx(35/2)^2xx"h"

rArr h = ((4/3)pixx(14)^3)/(1/3pi xx (35/2)^2 )=(4xx14xx14xx14xx2xx2)/(35xx35) = 35.84  "cm"
