Can in a Cone

Find the volume of the largest can that can fit entirely under a cone with volume 900 cubic cm.

1.draw pictures of at least THREE different cases (including the endpoints if any).

2. define all variables CLEARLY (with words) and then use those variables consistently.

3. Employ calculus to find the OPTIMAL case (which will be either a critical point or an endpoint).
