In this problem, we'll verify the correct expression against the proper dimension of the quantity described.

We'll assume the lengths are in meters.

Circumference dimension: L (m)

The figure shows a frustrum of a cone. Match each of the expressions (a) π(r_{1} + r_{2})[h^{2} + (r_{2} − r_{1})^{2}]^{1/2} (b) 2π(r_{1} + r_{2}) and (c) πh(r_{1}^{2} + r_{1}r_{2} + r_{2}^{2})/3 with the quantity it describes: (1) the total circumference of the flat circular faces (2) the volume or (3) the area of the curved surface
