FIFA World Cup earthquake

Geometry Level 1

At the 1920 FIFA World Cup, there was an earth quake during one of the games and a cone shaped hole was created with a diameter of 4 feet and sloping sides, both 4 feet long from ground-level to the bottom of the pit. The soccer ball, with a radius of one foot, fell into the hole. Find the distance from the center of the Soccer ball to the bottom of the pit in feet.

- The sides of the hole are perfectly straight and smooth.
- The ball falls as far as it can with out changing shape.
- FYI, there wasn't actually an earthquake at the 1920 FIFA World Cup.
