The formula for a pyramid. The volume of a pyramid is (1/3)(B)(h). The volume of a cone is essentially the same: (1/3)(B=πr2)(h)

Wouldn't a circle-based pyramid look a lot like a cone ? If so, you could probably use the formula for the volume of a cone and get away with it.

A cone is a common pyramid-like figure where the base is a circle or other closed curve instead of a polygon. A cone has a curved lateral surface instead of several triangular faces, but in terms of volume, a cone and a pyramid are just alike.

A cone is a pyramid in its limit - when the base has infinitely many vertices.

A pyramid and a cone are alike because they are both are like in the same shape.

PYRAMID

A cone ?

a pyramid and a cone are alike because they both have a flat side on the bottom and they can slide. they are different because a pyramid has 5 flat sides on the sides and 1 flat side on the bottom part. a cone can roll but a pyramid can't roll like the cone.

Cause the volume a box is wider than the volume of a cone and when we use shaped cone the cereal wont fit in

the are flat on the bottom and tappered at the top

How do we calculate volume of any cone shape object....like textile spinning auto cone 5.57 angle or degree

Yes, that's one of the things that makes it a cone. Just like a pyramid has a vertex as well.

Start with a regular tetrahedron (triangular based pyramid). As you increase the number of sides in the base of the pyramid, the shape becomes more and more like a right cone. In the limit, the base tends to a polygon with an infinite number of sides - a circle, and the pyramid tends to a right cone.

cone shaped * * * * * It is a square.

A frustum is a truncated cone or pyramid. In other words, a cone with the top cut off, much like an ice cream cone with a flat bottom.

no it's not a cone is a pyramid and has one base but a prism has two bases and is not a cone Actually, a cone is just a cone, like an ice cream cone. a prism is like a shape strechted out like a pipe. A cylindrical prism would be a pipe with closed ends.

a cone looks like an ice cream cone and a cylinder has 2 circles (one on each side) figure it out

it looks like a circle.

The given description fits that of a cone shape.

To calculate the volume of the cone do like this: 3*3*pi*6/3 Pi is about 3.14 So the answer is about 56.52cm³

None it has no sides because it is flat and kind of looks like a circular pyramid

This is too general. The following equation is for the volume of a square pyramid, where v= volume, l= length of the base, w= width of the base, and h= height of the pyramid: v=(1/3)*l*w*h In other words, volume=(one divided by three) times length times width times height Volume is measured in "cubic" units. The volume of a figure is the number of cubes required to fill it completely, like blocks in a box. Sorry, but this answer is incorrect. the formula given is that of which for a rectangular pyramid. (learned this today in math )

Yes and it is cone that has part of its top cut off parallel to its base and it looks like a plant pot.

There is no general rule. There are different formulae for simple figures like a sphere, a cone and a cylinder. Other figures have yet other and more complex formulae.

Volume is finding how much space there is in the object like if you add all the spaces
