A conical tent is to accommodate 11 persons . Each persons must have 4 sq. metres of the space on the ground and 20 cubic metres of air to breath . Find the height of the cone .

Answers (1)

 Solution:  Let h metres be the height , r metres the radius of base of the cone . Since the tent can accommodate 11 persons and each person requires 4 sq. metres of the space on the ground and 20 cubic metres of air . Therefore, 

               Area of the base =(11	imes4)m^2=44m^2Rightarrow pi r^2=44m^2......................(1)

               Volume of the cone =(11	imes20)m^3=220m^3Rightarrow frac13pi r^2h=220m^3.................(2)

Dividing (2) by (1) , we get 

               fracfrac13pi r^2hpi r^2=frac22044Rightarrow frach3=5Rightarrow h=15m.
