# A cylindrical jar of volume 150cm 3 is full of water. A solid cone is put in the cylindrical jar and some water is drained out. Find the volume of the cone if 2/3 rd of the water still remains in the jar?

volume of water inside is 2/3 of volume of water(v2)=150*2/3

volume of cone=v1-v2

=150-150*2/3

=150-100

=50cm^3

2/3 water still remains in the cylindrical tub

So,amount of water given out=1/3 of 150cm^3 =50cm^3

According to archimedes principle amount of water displaced is the volume of the object immersed in water

So, volume of the the cone will be 50cm^3
