Out of a circular piece of paper, you wish to form a cone cup, so you cut out a circle wedge (with its extreme at the circle center) and join the resulting straight sides, forming a conical cup.
What size should the wedge be, to maximize the capacity of the cone?

Erm... Why Hugo?
Good question. I was obviously wrong, the 360 degree cone doesn't have any volume. I should know better then doubting Charlie's solutions.
