# The volume of a right circular cone of height 12 cm and base radius 6 cm, is

Question:

The volume of a right circular cone of height 12 cm and base radius 6 cm, is

(a) $(12 \pi) \mathrm{cm}^{3}$

(b) $(36 \pi) \mathrm{cm}^{3}$

(c) $(72 \pi) \mathrm{cm}^{3}$

(d) $(144 \pi) \mathrm{cm}^{3}$

Solution:

(d) $(144 \pi) \mathrm{cm}^{3}$

Volume of the cone $=\frac{1}{3} \pi r^{2} h$

$=\frac{1}{3} \pi \times 6^{2} \times 12$

$=\pi \times 36 \times 4$

$=144 \pi \mathrm{cm}^{3}$
