volume of a Cyclinder = 1/3*pi*r square*h , the variables are the radius and height . if diameter is reduced by 1/3 , then radius also reduced by 1/3 , height is increased 3 times.

vol a / vol b will be
->r square*h / 1/9 rsquare * 3h
-> 1/ 1/3
-> 3/1

3:1 is the answer

(A) 3:1

(B) 1:1

(C) 1:3

(D) 1:9

(E) 1:27


v= 1/3 pi r^h

v1/v2 = r1^2 h 1 / r2^2 h2

h1 = 3h2

d1 = 1/3d2

2r1 = 1/3 2r2

r1 = r2/3

3r1 = r2

v1 = r1 ^2 h 1 = r2/9 x 3 h2 = r2^2h2/3

v2 = r2^2 h2

v1/v2 = 1/3

Vol of cylinder \(= \pi*r^2*h\)

One third the diameter means one third the radius too.

\(\frac{Vol of A}{Vol of B} = \frac{\pi * (r/3)^2 * 3h}{\pi * r^2 * h} = \frac{1}{3}\)

Answer (C)
