### Question

What is the volume of a cone generated by rotating a right angled triangle with sides 25, 7 and 24 cm? The rotation is done about the side of length 24 cm.

**A**

392 π sq. cm.

**B**

393 π sq. cm.

**C**

391 π sq. cm.

**D**

$131{2/3}$ π sq. cm.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The radius of the base of the cone r = 7 cm, and height h = 24 cm. The volume is $1/3$π$(r^2 × h)$ = $1/3$π$(7^2 × 24)$ = 392π.
