A sphere is inscribed in a right cone. The slant height of the cone = the diameter of the base of cone. If the radius of the sphere is r, find the volume of the cone in terms of r.
A nice diagram is shown at

which shows that if r is the radius of the sphere, and R is the radius of the cone described, then R=r√3
