A right circular cone is inscribed in a sphere. The base of the cone lies in the bottom half of the sphere. A dashed line segment goes from the vertex of the cone to a point in the center of the sphere. It is labeled 12 inches.

The radius of the sphere has a length of 12 in.

If the slant height of the cone has a length equal to that of its diameter, find the length (in inches) of the following.
