1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the volume of a right elliptical cone with an elliptic base with semi-axesaandband heighh

2. Relevant equations

So: [itex]\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}=1[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

That's what I have, but answer should be:

[itex]V=\frac{1}{3}abh\pi[/itex]

I've checked it all over again like 10 times, but I can't find the mistake. If you can see it I'd be grateful
