From a circle of radius 15 cm., a sector with angle 216° is cut out and its bounding radii are bent so as to form a cone. Find its volume.



For this question Lateral surface area(LSA) of cone=area of the sector

=>pi*r1*l=(216/360)*pi*r^2(here l=r=radius of the sector=lateral length of the cone,r1=radius of the cone)
solving it we get,
now by pythagoras theorem;
solving it we get

so volume =(1/3)*pi*r1^2*h
so V=(1/3)*pi*9^2*12
solving it we get V=1017.36cu.cm
