## Text Solution

Reasoning:

Volume of the cone is \begin{align}\frac{1}{3} \end{align} times of the volume of a cylinder \begin{align} = \frac{1}{3}\pi {r^2}h \end{align}.

What is known?

Sides of the right triangle.

What is unknown?

Volume of the solid obtained.

Steps:

Radius $$(r) = 5\rm\, cm$$

height $$(h) = 12 \rm\,cm$$

Volume of cone

\begin{align}&= \frac{1}{3}\pi {r^2}h \\ &= \frac{1}{3} \times \frac{{22}}{7} \times 5 \times 5 \times 12\\ &= \frac{{2200}}{7}\,\,or\,\,100\pi \end{align}

Volume of the cone \begin{align}100\pi \,\,\rm\,c{m^3} \end{align}.
