**Steve**, Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 5:47amIf the base of the cone is x units below the center of the sphere,

cone height = x+5

Draw a line from the center of the sphere to the base of the cone. It is a radius, so its length is 5.

If the radius of the base of the cone is r, the

r^2 + x^2 = 25

r^2 = 25-x^2

volume of cone is

v = 1/3 pi r^2 * h = 1/3 pi (25-x^2)(x+5)
