**ANSWER : -** Let r and h be the radius and height of the cone respectively inscribed in a sphere of radius R.

Let V be the volume of the cone.

Then,

Height of the cone is given by,

[ABC is a right triangle]

âˆ´ By second derivative test the volume of the cone is die maximum when

**Question 98: Show that the right circular cone of least curved surface and given volume has an altitude equal to time the radius of the base**.

**ANSWER : -** Let *r *and *h* be the radius and the height (altitude) of the cone respectively.

Then, the volume (*V)* of the cone is given as:

The surface area (S) of the cone is given by.

S = Ï€rI (where l is the slant height)

Thus, it. can be easily verified that when

**Question 99: Show that the semi-vertical angle of the cone of the maximum volume and of given slant height is **

**ANSWER : -** Let Î¸ be the semi-vertical angle of the cone.

It is clear that

Let r, h. and 1 be the radius, height, and the slant height of the cone respectively.

The slant height of the cone is given as constant.

Now, r = l sin Î¸ and h = 1 cos Î¸

The volume (V) of the cone is given by,

**Question 100: **T**he point on the curve x^{2} = 2y which is nearest to the point (0, 5) is**

(A)

(B)

(C) (0, 0)

(D) (2, 2)

**ANSWER : - **The given curve is x^{2} = 2y.

For each value of x. the position of the point will be

The distance d(x) between the points and (0,5) is given by.

âˆ´ By second derivative test. d(x) is the minimum at

When

Hence, the point on the curve x^{2} = 2y which is nearest to the point (0, 5) is

The correct answer is A.
