11. Infinitely many different sectors can be cut from a circular piece of paper with a 12-cm radius, and any such sector can be fashioned into a paper cone with a 12-cm slant height.

(a) Show that the volume of the cone produced by the 180-degree sector is larger than the volume of the cone produced by the 120-degree sector.

(b) Find a sector of the same circle that will produce a cone whose volume is even larger.

(c) Express the volume of a cone formed from this circle as a function of the central angle of the sector used to form it, then find the sector that produces the cone of greatest volume.
