Expert Answer:

The solid generated by revolving the triangle is a cone with height (h) = 0.3 m and radius (r) = 0.4 m

 begin mathsize 12px style straight V space equals space 1 third πr squared straight h end style

  begin mathsize 12px style straight V equals 1 third straight pi cross times 0.4 cross times 0.4 cross times 0.3 equals 0.05028 space cm cubed end style
