The Problem:
The spherical top holds a little over 54,000 gallons of water. The base of the top is 60 feet above the ground. The diameter of the supporting column is one-third the radius of the sphere. The base of the supporting column flares out like a cone (a frustum) so that the diameter of the bottom is equal to the radius of the sphere; this bottom section is 15 feet tall. Likewise, the connection between the support and the sphere (another frustum) flares out to a diameter equal to two-thirds the radius of the spehere and is 10 feet tall.
