# The Height of a Cone is 15 Cm. If Its Volume is 500 π Cm3, Then Find the Radius of Its Base. - Mathematics

The height of a cone is 15 cm. If its volume is 500  π cm3, then find the radius of its base.

#### Solution

The formula of the volume of a cone with base radius ‘r’ and vertical height ‘h’ is given as

Volume of cone =  1/3 pi r^2 h

It is given that the height of the cone is ‘h’ = 15 cm and that the volume of the cone is   500 pi cm^3

We can now find the radius of base ‘r’ by using the formula for the volume of a cone.

r^2 = (3("Volume of the cone "))/(pih)

=(3(500 pi))/(pi(15))

r^2= 100

r = 10

Hence the radius of the base of the given cone is 10 cm
