I'm having trouble solving this question. This is what I have done so far

we know V=pi*r^2*h/3

r is given, so we need to put h in terms of @.

now by similar triangles we can take another slice, and compare

r/h=R/(h-1).... (h-1) is just the height of the triangle below the new slice

solving for h I get h=1/(1-R/r) now i'm unsure of what to do now, and how to get @ into the equation.

Anyways please let me know if i'm doing this question completely wrong or what not. Thanks for all your help
