Solution 1

`V=1/3piR^2H`
It is clear from the figure that

`R^2+(H−r)^2=r^2`

`⇒R^2+H^2+r^2−2Hr=r^2`

`⇒R^2=2Hr−H^2`

Substituting the value of R2 in the formula for the volume of the cone, we get

`V=1/3pi(2Hr-H^2)H`

` V=2/3πrH^2−π/3H^3`

 

Differentiating with respect to H both sides, we get:

`(dV)/(dH)=4/3πrH−πH^2`

At critical point,`(dV)/(dH)` is 0.

`⇒4/3πrH−πH^2=0`

`⇒H=4/3r`

Differentiating V w.r.t H again, we get:

`(d^2V)/(dH^2)=4/3πr−2πH`

`|(d^2V)/(dH^2)|_(H=4/3r)=−4/3πr <0`


Hence maxima.

Volume of cone =
`1/3πR^2H`

` V=2/3πrH^2−π/3H^3`

Substituting the value of H, we get:

`V=2/3πr(4/3r)^2−π/3(4/3r)^3`

`=>V=8/27(4πr^3−8/3πr^3)`

`=>V=8/27(4/3πr^3)`

`=>V=8/27(volume of sphere)`

 

Solution 2

A sphere of fixed radius (r) is given.

Let R and h be the radius and the height of the cone, respectively.

The volume (V) of the cone is given by,

`V=1/3piR^2h`

Now, from the right triangle BCD, we have:

`BC=sqrt(r^2-R^2)`

`:.h=r+sqrt(r^2-R^2)`

 `V=1/3piR^2(r+sqrt(r^2-R^2))=1/3piR^2r+1/3piR^2sqrt(r^2-R^2)`

`(dV)/(dR)=2/3piRr+2/3piRsqrt(r^2-R^2)+(piR^2)/3 (-2R)/(2sqrt(r^2-R^2))`

`=2/3piRr+2/3piRsqrt(r^2-R^2)-(piR^3)/(3sqrt(r^2-R^2))`

`=2/3piRr+(2piR(r^2-R^2)-piR^3)/(3sqrt(r^2-R^2))`

`2/3piRr+(2piRr^2-3piR^3)/(3sqrt(r^2-R^2))`

Now  

`(dV)/(dR^2)=0`

`=>(2pirR)/3=(3piR^3-2piRr^2)/(3sqrt(r^2-R^2))`

`=>2rsqrt(r^2-R^2)=3R^2-2r^2`

`=>4r^2(r^2-R^2)=(3R^2-2r^2)^2`

`=>4r^4-4r^2R^2=9R^4+4r^4-12R^2r^2`

`=>9R^4-8r^2R^2=0`

`=>9R^2=8r^2`

`=>R^2=(8r^2)/9`

Now,

`(d^2V)/(dR^2)=(2pir)/3+(3sqrt(r^2-R^2)(2pir^2-9piR^2)-(2piRr^2-3piR^3)(-6R)1/(2sqrtr^2-R^2))/(9(r^2-R^2))`

 

`=(2pir)/3+(3sqrt(r^2-R^2) (2pir^2-9piR^2)+(2piRr^2-3piR^3)(3R)1/(2sqrt(r^2-R^2)))/(9(r^2-R^2))`

 

Now when `R^2=(8r^2)/9`it can be shown that `(d^2V)/(dR^2)<0`

∴ The volume is the maximum when `R^2=(8r^2)/9`

When `R^2=(8r^2)/9`height of cone= `r+sqrt(r^2-(8r^2)/9)=r+sqrt(r^2/9)=r+r/3=(4r)/3`

Hence, it can be seen that the altitude of a right circular cone of maximum volume that can be inscribed in a sphere of radius r is `(4r)/3`

Let volume of the sphere be `V_s=4/3pir^3`

`r=3sqrt((3V_s)/(4pi))`

 Volume of cone, V = `1/3piR^2h`

R `(2sqrt2)/3r`

V = `1/3pi((2sqrt2)/3r)xx(4r)/3`

V `1/3pi(8r^2)/9xx(4r)/3`

`V=(32pir^3)/81=32/81pi[(3V_s)/(4pi)]`

 Volume of cone in terms of sphere

Complete the following activity to divide 84 into two parts such that the product of one part and square of the other is maximum.

Solution: Let one part be x. Then the other part is 84 - x

Letf (x) = x2 (84 - x) = 84x2 - x3

∴ f'(x) = `square`

and f''(x) = `square`

For extreme values, f'(x) = 0

∴ x = `square  "or"    square`

f(x) attains maximum at x = `square`

Hence, the two parts of 84 are 56 and 28.


The rectangle has area of 50 cm2. Complete the following activity to find its dimensions for least perimeter.

Solution: Let x cm and y cm be the length and breadth of a rectangle.

Then its area is xy = 50

∴ `y =50/x`

Perimeter of rectangle `=2(x+y)=2(x+50/x)`

Let f(x) `=2(x+50/x)`

Then f'(x) = `square` and f''(x) = `square`

Now,f'(x) = 0, if x = `square`

But x is not negative.

∴ `x = root(5)(2)   "and" f^('')(root(5)(2))=square>0`

∴ by the second derivative test f is minimum at x = `root(5)(2)`

When x = `root(5)(2),y=50/root(5)(2)=root(5)(2)`

∴ `x=root(5)(2)  "cm" , y = root(5)(2)  "cm"`

Hence, rectangle is a square of side `root(5)(2)  "cm"`
