The right cylinder in the diagram has a volume of 450 cm3. The other cylinder has a slant length of 10 cm, but the same base area and vertical height. What is the volume of the tilted cylinder?

Just find the area of the original one.. "Cavalieri's principle" tells us that the two cylinders are equal.
