Imagine we have a cone filled with water, if we were to take the upper portion of that cone how would we calculate the volume of water present. For example:
So, in this example we have a surface area of 100 m^2, a depth of 300 m and a length at the base of 10 m. Is this solved by calculating the area at the bottom of the cone i.e. pi*0.5*10 ^2 and then when combined with the depth we could calculate the volume?
Any advise would be appreciated.
