# Cups A and B are cone shaped and have heights of #33 cm# and #37 cm# and openings with radii of #10 cm# and #7 cm#, respectively. If cup B is full and its contents are poured into cup A, will cup A overflow? If not how high will cup A be filled?

Consider across section vertically through the centre of each cone.

If the area of the taller cross section will fit in the area of the shorter one then so will the volumes.

Let cross section area be

we require that

Volume a circular cone is

Thus the volume of B is:

The radius will vary in accordance with the height from zero to full radius at the top height of 33cm.

So

The volume of the transferred material is

We need to find and compare the Volumes of A and B. Check first whether they are similar in shape - this would make some of the calculations easier.

Therefore A will not overflow but we need to find the height.

The cone formed by the water in A and the whole cone of A are similar in shape.

The ratio of the cubes of the heights is equal to the ratio of the volumes.

No, cup A will not overflow. When the contents of cup B are poured into cup A, the volume of cup A will increase by the volume of cup B. Since the volume of a cone is given by V = (1/3)πr^2h, where r is the radius and h is the height, we can calculate the volumes of cups A and B and compare them.

Volume of cup A = (1/3)π(10^2)(33) ≈ 3465.98 cm^3 Volume of cup B = (1/3)π(7^2)(37) ≈ 3591.34 cm^3

The difference in volumes is approximately 125.36 cm^3. Since this is less than the volume of cup B, cup A will not overflow. Cup A will be filled to a height of 33 cm + (125.36 cm^3 / (π(10^2))) ≈ 36.41 cm.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
