Consider the right circular cone shown. if the radius of the circular base remains the same and the height varies, what is the minimum surface area and minimum volume the cone can have?

Copy and paste does not work. No cone is shown.
However, since volume of a cone = (1/3) * pi * radius^2 * height, as long as radius remains the same, the minimal height will = minimum volume. The same with surface area.
