Textbook Problem

In Exercises 15 to 20, use that fact that r 2 + h 2 = l 2 in a right circular cone (Theorem 9.3.6).Find the height h of a right circular cone in which the diameter of the base measures d = 9.6 m l = 5.2 m.

To determine

To calculate:

The height h of the right circular cone.

Explanation

Given:

Consider a right circular cone with diameter d=9.6m and l=5.2m.

Formula used:

In a right circular cone, r2+h2=l2.

Calculation:

Given, d=9.6m and l=5.2m.

We know, 2r=d

2r=9.6r=9.62r=4.8m

Substitute the known values in the formula,
