Calculus II homework problem os archimedes

formula for the volume of a section of a given height: V= (1/3)(pi)h^2(3r - h) where h is the height of the section and r is the radius of the sphere.

A) if a plane at distance x= r - h from the center of the unit sphere cuts into two segments, one with twice the volume of the other, show that x must satisfy the equation: 3x^3 - 9x + 2 = 0

B) now use newton's method to find a solution to the problem of archimedes, accurate to 8 decimal places.

I don't know where to start! Thank you
