A cone C, with height I and radius I, has its base in

the xz-plane and its vertex on the positive y-axis. Find a

function g(x, y, z) such that C is part of the level surface

g(x, y, z) = 0.

2. Relevant equations

What would be the formula for the cone such that the base of the cone is lying on the xz-plane and the vertex is on the y-axis?

3. The attempt at a solution

We know that the formula for a cone is [tex]x^2+y^2-z^2[/tex], but we don't know where to go from there to get the formula for the description above.
