9). Find the dimensions of a right circular cone of minimum volume that can be circumscribed about a sphere of radius 8cm

32 , 8root

In the above figure, Let r be the radius of the base of the cone and let y + b be the height of the cone.
From the similar triangles ABC and AED,

Then
The volume of the cone is

Differentiate with respect to y

The only critical number is y = 3b so that dV/dy = 0.
when y < 3b, dV/dy <0, and y >3b, dV/dy >0, Using the first derivative test, at the above critical ...
