Given,

Height = $h =12\ cm$

Slant height = $l = \sqrt{r^2 + h^2} = 13\ cm$

Radius = $r =\sqrt{l^2-h^2} = \sqrt{13^2-12^2}$

$= \sqrt{(13-12)(13+12)} = \sqrt{(1)(25)}$

$= 5\ cm$

We know,
Volume of a right circular cone = $\frac{1}{3}\pi r^2 h$

$\therefore$ Volume of the vessel= $\frac{1}{3}\times\frac{22}{7}\times5^2\times12$

$\\ = \frac{22}{7}\times25\times4\\ = \frac{2200}{7}\ cm^3$

$\therefore$ Required capacity of the vessel =

$= \frac{2200}{7\times1000} = \frac{11}{35}\ litres$
