Best answer

Height (h1) of cylindrical bucket = 32 cm

Radius (r1) of circular end of bucket = 18 cm

Height (h2) of conical heap = 24 cm

Let the radius of the circular end of conical heap be r2.

The volume of sand in the cylindrical bucket will be equal to the volume of sand in the conical heap.

Volume of sand in the cylindrical bucket = Volume of sand in conical heap

r2 = 18 x 2=36 cm

Slant height = 

Therefore, the radius and slant height of the conical heap are 36 cm and 12√13 cm respectively
