Cooling towers for nuclear reactors are often constructed as hyperboloids of one sheet because of the structural stability of that surface. Suppose all horizontal cross sections are circular, with a minimum radius of 200 feet occurring at a height of 600 feet. The tower is to be 800 feet tall with a maximum cross-sectional radius of 300 feet. Find the equation of the surface.
