Find the Dimensions of the right circular cone of minimum volume which can be circumscribed about a sphere of radius 8 inches.

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

So this is my try, i did the question to find the minimum volume of the cone,

For Larger Size: http://i54.tinypic.com/29yqyiw.jpg

As you can see the minimum value is when h=0 , thus volume is equal to 0, it makes sense the minimum volume would be 0, buti think i did the question wrong, can you tell me where i've gone wrong.

Please help
