Volume Calculation of a Cone: Changing radius at Constant Height

Derive a formula that estimates the change that occurs in the volume of a right circular cone when the radius changes from r0 to r1 and the height does not change.

Solution Preview

V = (1/3) *pi*(r^2)*h
when radius changes from r to r + dr:
V+dV ...

Solution Summary

The volume of a cone is derived when radius changes and height remains constant.
