From two places equal of radio circular R It wants to build a buoy consists of two equal bass common cones

Determine the radius of Ia base when the volume of the buoy is maximum.

r=(sqrt of 6) R/3

I must confess I have little idea what you are asking. I am assuming a buoy is to be constructed by joining two cones at their bases, but other than that I have no idea what is going on.

well, what you said is the main idea
a buoy is something put ond the water on beaches as a limit so that people can not go further if they do not do that they can die

Yes, I understand that a buoy is used as a marker on the water, but it is the problem I don't understand. Can you provide a diagram?

Re: Max and min

from two pieces that are the same i mean equal of radius R , from these i want to built the buoy
there is no graph in my book
ahhh. the pieces are circular both
