a cylinder has a radius of 3cm and a length of 10cm every dimention of the cylinder is multiplied by 3 to form a new cylinder how is the ratio of the volumes related the ratio of corresponding dimensions? how would i do this?

Volume of cylinder = area of the base * height , or

V = pi*(r^2)*h

V,original = pi*(3^2)(10)

*you solve for this.

then for the new one,

r,new = 3*3 = 9

h,new = 3*10 = 30

V, new = pi*(9^2)(30)

you solve also for this.

then compare their volumes, find:

(V,new)/V

so there,, hope this helps~ :)

yes,, (V,new)/V = 27,,

and ration of dimensions is 3 (because it is tripled according to problem)

now, how is 27 related to 3?

How is the ratio of the volumes related to the ratio of corresponding dimensions?
