Vol. for union of geometric shapes
Can someone help to find the volume of a shape given, this is an intersection of cone and cylinder where d = diameter of cylinder = base of cone, h = height of cone, k = 30 cm = the intersection. If I get a formula V = f ( d, h, k )

Forgive my lack of understanding, but are you trying to find the volume of the object that remains when you place a cone inside a cylinder where the cone and cylinder share the same base and have the same height, and subtract the area of the cone from the area of the cylinder?

I am really having a difficult time understanding.

The cone and cylinder share the same base but the base lays in a 3 dimensional plane. Try to read the figure.
