A cone has a volume of 36pi cubic meters. Its height is four times its radius. Find the surface area of the cone.

  • geometry -

    v = 1/3 pi * r^2 * h

    h = 4r

    36pi = 1/3 pi * r^2 * 4r = 4/3 pi r^3
    27 = r^3
    r = 3

    If you don't include the area of the base,
    a = pi * rs = pi * r*sqrt(r^2 + h^2)
    = pi * r*sqrt(r^2 + 16r^2)
    = pi * r^2 * sqrt(17)
    = 116.6 m^2
