Abstract: The volume of a cone is one third of the volume of a cylinder if they share same base and equal height. Let’s propose a hypothesis, if we expand the research area from cones to elliptical cones, could the maximum ratio of volume beyond one third? This paper tries to pull away the veils of it. Firstly, we present four types of inscribed elliptical cones inside cylinders, and con-sequently all the other inscribed elliptical cones can be classified to these four types. Secondly, for each type of them, this paper discusses the corresponding volume ratio of the inscribed elliptical cone to the cylinder. It is concluded that the largest ratio of the volume of an inscribed cone to that of the cylinder is 1 3. Finally, two types whose ratio could reach 1 3 are given as examples.
