- geometry: volume of cone -
**Jai**, Monday, May 9, 2011 at 8:58amrecall that volume of cone is given by

V = pi*(r^2)*h/3

where

pi = 3.14 (constant)

r = radius

h = height

if r becomes (1/2)r,

V,new = pi*[(1/2)r]^2*h/3

V,new = 1/4[pi*(r^2)*h/3]

V,new = (1/4)V

thus multiplied by 1/4.

hope this helps~ :)

- geometry: volume of cone -
**Reiny**, Monday, May 9, 2011 at 8:58amoriginal volume = (1/3)π(r^2)h

new volume = (1/3)π(r/2)^2 h = (1/3)π((r^2)/4)h

so multiplied by 1/4
