V=(1/3)*π*(r^2)*h; being h the height of the cone and r the base radius.
V= 300 cm3; 300=(1/3)*π*(r^2)*h; 900 = π*(2^2)*h ; 900= 4*3.141592*h
h= 900/12.57 = 71.60 cm
h=71.60 cm   it is a very singular cone!!!!!!


Every time my ice cream melts it all drips out the little hole at the bottom!
So no cone will hold that much :-(   lol
