r =\left ( \frac{3V}{\pi \sqrt{2}} \right )^{\frac{1}{3}}   or V=\frac{\pi r^2 \sqrt{2}}{3}

Hint: For maxima or minima f'(x) must be zero f'(x) = 0

Given: Volume =\frac{1}{3}\pi r^2 h

Solution: V=\frac{1}{3}\pi r^2 h,h =\frac{3V}{\pi r^2}

Slant height, l = \sqrt{h^2+r^2}

\begin{aligned} &=\sqrt{\left(\frac{3 V}{\pi r^{2}}\right)^{2}+r^{2}} \\ &=\sqrt{\left(\frac{9 V^{2}}{\pi^{2} r^{4}}\right)+r^{2}} \\ &I=\sqrt{\frac{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}{\pi^{2} r^{4}}}=\frac{\sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}{\pi r^{2}} \end{aligned}

Curved surface area, e = \pi r l

\begin{aligned} &C(r)=\frac{\pi r \sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}{\pi r^{2}} \\ &=\frac{\sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}{r} \end{aligned}

\begin{aligned} &C^{\prime}(r)=\frac{\frac{r \times 6 \pi^{2} r^{5}}{2 \sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}-\sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}{r^{2}} \\ &=\frac{\left[\frac{3 \pi^{2} r^{6}-\left(9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}\right)}{\sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}\right]}{r^{2}} \end{aligned}

\begin{aligned} &=\frac{3 \pi^{2} r^{6}-9 V^{2}-\pi^{2} r^{6}}{r^{2} \sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}} \\ &=\frac{2 \pi^{2} r^{6}-9 V^{2}}{r^{2} \sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}} \end{aligned}


\begin{aligned} &\frac{2 \pi^{2} r^{6}-9 V^{2}}{r^{2} \sqrt{9 V^{2}+\pi^{2} r^{6}}}=0 \\ &2 \pi^{2} r^{6}=9 V^{2} \\ &V^{2}=\frac{2 \pi^{2} r^{6}}{9}, V=\sqrt{\frac{2 \pi^{2} r^{6}}{9}} \end{aligned}

V=\frac{\pi r^{3} \sqrt{2}}{3} \text { or } r=\left(\frac{3 V}{\pi \sqrt{2}}\right)^{\frac{1}{3}}


h =\frac{3}{\pi r^2}\times \frac{\pi r^3 \sqrt{2}}{3}

h =r \sqrt{2}

\frac{h }{r}= \sqrt{2}

\cot \theta = \sqrt{2}, \theta = \cot^{-1}\sqrt{2}

Since, r <\left ( \frac{3V}{\pi \sqrt{2}} \right )^{\frac{1}{3}}, C'(r)<0 and for r >\left ( \frac{3V}{\pi \sqrt{2}} \right )^{\frac{1}{3}}, C'(r)>0

Curved surface area for  r =\left ( \frac{3V}{\pi \sqrt{2}} \right )^{\frac{1}{3}}   or V=\frac{\pi r^2 \sqrt{2}}{3}
