A pile of gravel is conical in shape. If the diameter is approximately 6.8m and the height is 2.8m, what is the volume of gravel in the pile.

  • geometry -

    v = (1/3)pi(r^2)h
    r = d/2
    = 6.8/2
    = 3.4
    v = (1/3)pi(3.4^2)(2.8)

    still don't get this formula could you show me how to get the answer in more details?
