**Jeff**, Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 11:37pmWe know the formula for the Volume of a Right Circular Cone is given by

V=(1/3)*pi*r^2*h

V=140 in^3

The height of the cone = diameter of the base. The diameter = 2 times the radius, so h = 2r

The formula for Volume can now be written as

V=(1/3)*pi*r^2*(2r)

which simplifies to

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

You plug in 140 in^3 for V and solve for r. Then you can plug the value you find for r into the equation h=2r

**Reiny**, Monday, February 18, 2013 at 12:13amV = (1/3 π r^2 h , but h = 2r

3V = π r^2 (2r) = 2π r^3

420 = 2πr^3

r^3 = 210/π

r = (210/π)^(1/3) = 4.0584

r = 4.0584

h = 8.11683

check:

V = (1/3)π(4.0584)^2 (8.11683) = 139.9989.. , not bad
