Solution

Let CD = R, AD = x

⇒ OD = h - x

∵ ODC ∼ ΔOAB

⇒ `(h - x)/h = R/"AB" ⇒ (h - x)/h = R/(h tan α)`

⇒ R = (h - x) tan α

V = πR2x

= π(h - x)2 tan2α. x

= π tan2α (h - x)2x

`dV/dx = π tan2α (h2 - 4hx + 3x2)`

`dV/dx = 0 = h^2 - 4hx + 3x^2 = 0`

⇒ (h - x)(h - 3x) = 0

⇒ x = h (not possible ) or x  =` h/3`

`(d^2V)/(dx^2) = π tan^2α (-4h + 6x)`

`((d^2V)/(dx^2))_(x = h/3) = π tan^2α (-2h) < 0`

⇒ V is maximum for x = `h/3`.

So, Vmax = π tan2α (h - x)2x

`= π tan^2α ( h - h/3 )^2 h/3`

= `(4πh)^3/27 tan^2 a`
