comment No idea how to solve this equation using two exponentials
@AndréNicolas Could you explain how one cannot expect a closed form formula for $x$ ?

comment Volume of a Cone — Stuck On My Approach
Thank you for your comment. I've certainly seen this approach when I took calculus many years ago, but I was hoping to attack it this way as a personal learning experience.

comment Volume of a Cone — Stuck On My Approach
@RossMillikan, Thank you for your comment. I'm a little confused by your comment that a 3d integral won't have to do with rotation. In the case of a finding a rectangle with dimensions $A,B,C$, don't we take $\int_0^C AB dC = ABC$ for the volume? Instead of adding the individual areas along $dc$ can't we just add the individual areas of a triangle around an angle $d\theta$ to get the cone volume? That's what I imagine when I say "rotation"
