a right cone is inscribed in a sphere of radius R. Let S=f(x) be the functional relationship between the lateral surface area S of the cone and its gereratrix x then the find the value of f(R) and if x is such that x to the power n, n>= 6 is negligible then find S.

Hii vashuda


First of all before reading this...draw the geometry of the condition given....i am assuming that u have drawn a sphere a cone ...with


 


Slant height = x  radius of cone = r  and heigh of cone = h


Radiius of sphere = R after this read my solution


 


The height of the cone h = R + (something)


something = distance of centre from the base of the cone....you need to find this something okk


Let it be z


then by applying a few strength on mind you will get ..


z = root( R^2 - r^2)   [ because there is a small right angle triangle formed by side R , r and z with R as largest side )


 


Now surface area  S = π.r.x= f(x)


 


again x , h and r form a rt.angled triangle..


 


x^2 = h^2 + r^2  => x^2 = (R+z)^2 + r^2    =  R^2 + z^2 + 2.z.R + r^2


 


x^2 = R^2 + R^2 -r^2 +  2.root(R^2-r^2).R + r^2 


x^2 = 2.R^2  + 2.root(R^2-r^2).R 


now put x=R


R^2 = 2.R^2 + 2.root(R^2 -r^2).R


 


-R^2 = 2.root(R^2 -r^2).R


-R = 2.root( R^2 -r^2)


 


R^2 = 4.(R^2 - r^2)


4r^2  = 3R^2


 


or  r = R.root(3)/2 --------(1)


 


f(x) = pi.x.r


 


So f(R) = pi.R.( R.root(3)/2 ) =  root(3).pi.R^2 / 2    ans ....


 


If u r unable to understand my steps...then please ask furthure...
