word problem using graphing calculator

A cylinder is inscribed in a sphere of radius 1. Express the volume V of the cylinder as a function of the base radius r. State the domain. Using the graphing calculator, find the radius and height of the cylinder having the maximum volume. State the window used on the calculator to find this answer.

That is correct.  Put the volume function into the calculator, and vary the angle to find the maximum value of the function, either graphically or by trial and error.
