I just have a quick question. I'm supposed to find the work required to pump gas out of a cone, but am having trouble finding the radius of the cone.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It doesn't seem right though. And, if it is right, where do I go from there? Any help is appreciated :)
