Let ABC be cone. Height of metallic cone AO = 20cm

Cone is cut into two parts at the middle point of its axis

Hence height of frustum cone AD = 10cm

Since angle A is right angled. So each angles B and C = 45°

Angles E and F 45°

Let radii of top and bottom circles of frustum cone bee r1 and r2 cm
