I can't figure out how to derive this. This is the formula for the volume of a cone. R is a constant and the side of the cone. Can be any real number.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If anyone could take a crack at deriving this id be very greatful!

[tex]V = \pi/3 * (R(1 - x/2\pi))^2 * \sqrt{(R^2 - (R(1 - x/2\pi))^2}[/tex]
