Calculus Homework Help -- Optimization Word Problem

I'm in a University Calculus class, and I am having trouble with one of my homework questions. Much help would be appreciated!

"Determine the height and radius of the cylinder of greatest volume that can be inscribed in a sphere of radius R units."

Also, we are learning about derivatives, so if the question is solved using them, please indicate!
Thank you so much!.
