Anyone know a way to draw this part with a variable radius ?
You can use an equation driven curve to draw out that radius then revolve around an axis.
First you need to make sure you are in MKS units.
Second, you need to put in your equation in and your parameters. Your Y_x is going to be your equation shown there with x instead of y and your parameters are 0 to 3
This will generate a curve in the x direction so you can modify where it sits (adding the other dimensions of 3 and .5 m ) and revolve around the x axis if you want to make a part from this.

John, you have oversimplified the problem. What Emilio has is a formula that needs to be solved.
Take pencil and paper and solve for the unknown variables.
Follow John's direction.
