Halfway between a Cylinder and a Cone! (Tanton: Mathematics)

The volume of a cylinder is base x height and the volume of a cone is (1/3) base x height. (See geometry Formulas Explained video for that.) In this video I describe an object that is halfway between the two and has volume (1/2) base x height. NOTE: I use calculus in this video, but one can also establish this result using the same methods as described in the cone video without calculus. That's a challenge for you!
