cutting out a circular sector. we need to know the value of θ that maximizes the cone's volume. cutting out a circular sector.94 deg deg = 293. in order to make the cone. Let the disk radius be R. and the radius of the base of the resulting cone be r. so and thus s = Rθ = θ= /R radians /R = /R = /12 = /9 = and using radians = 180 degrees deg = 293. the arc length (perimeter) of the arcsection subtended by θ is: s = Rθ When rolled into a cone the arc length s becomes the circumference of the cone's circular base. and its height h. write V in terms of just r or h and differentiate accordingly. How tall is the cone? a) cm b) cm c) cm d) cm [Circular Sector: https://en. From geometry. and gluing the new edges together.org/wiki/Circular_sector] The geometry of both problems is the same.94 deg For Fake Question 20: θ = For Real Question 20: θ = /3 radians or /3 radians or .wikipedia. and h = and r = with volume of cone V = To find the maximum cone volume.Fake Question 20 A paper cone is to be formed by starting with a disk of radius 12 cm. The size of the circular sector is chosen to maximize the volume of the resulting cone. so the process of solving both is similar. What is the maximum volume of such a cone? a) cm3 b) cm3 c) cm3 d) 6 cm3 e) cm3 Real Question 20 A paper cone is to be formed by starting with a disk of radius 9 cm. volume of cone: V = V= = and writing r in term of h gives: = =0 = 0 and so h = For Fake Question 20: h = = = cm and r2 = = cm and r2 = = = = = 96 (so r = cm3 = 54 (so r = cm3 cm) cm) so then the maximum volume is: VMax = For Real Question 20: h = = = so then the maximum volume is: VMax = However. however. the math comes out easier by replacing r in terms of h. and gluing the new edges together. Thus R2 = h2 + r2.

which match the This gives for R = 9 cm.94 deg). = 0= = = = = = Max = =0 radians radians (293. and for R = 12 cm. We worked backwards to find it.From above it seems the maximum θ for any R is /3 radians or ≈ 294 degrees. [Experiment: make cones from 3 same sized circles with 3 different θ s. the maximum cone volume becomes just: VMax = cm3. Vmax = values previously obtained.] . θ > 294 deg (say 310 deg).94 = 66. and θ < 294 deg (say 280 deg).06 (~66) degrees and use the bigger piece to form the maximum volume cone. and see which one holds the most salt. cut out an angular section of 360 – 293. Thus. θ = 294 deg. VMax = cm3. From above: and then: and so: and thus: s = Rθ = h= V= V= = gives r = Rθ/ = = Now that we have V in term of just θ we can differentiate it with respect to θ and set it to zero. How do we directly prove this is true (or false) with calculus? First. write V in terms of θ. So to make a cone of maximum volume cut from a circular sector of a disk. we proved that the circular sector θ that maximizes V for any R is Then using Max in V = .
