Homework Statement


The circumference of a tree at different heights above the ground is given in the table below.
Assume that all horizontal cross-sections of the tree are circles.

[tex]\begin{array}{cccccccc}\text{Height} & 0 & 20 & 40 & 60 & 80 & 100 & 120 \\
\text{Circumference} & 31 & 28 & 21 & 17 & 12 & 8 & 2\end{array}[/tex]


Homework Equations


Estimate the volume of the tree. (Measurements are in inches.)


The Attempt at a Solution


I already try to do this by finding the linear function of the radius of the tree from 0-20, 20-40 and so on but this takes a long time. I have to solve this using integrals, is there any faster way to do this?
