A cone has 1/3 the volume of its cylinder. To find the volume multiply the area of the circular base (pi times radius squared) and multiply it by the height of the cone. That is the volume of the cylinder with the same dimensions. Divide this number by 3 to find the area of the cone. Use unit ratios to make sure your answer is in cubic centimeters.
This cone has a lateral surface area of approximately 226.73cm2
You use the formula for the volume of a right-circular cone:Volume = 1/3 (pi) x (radius of the base)2 x (height).Put the numbers you know into the formula, and it'll fix you right up.That's why it's so handy to know these formulas, or at least to knowwhere you can find one of them when you need it.
A cone has two surfaces, lateral surface and its circular surface at the base.The surface area of a cone is the sum of the areas of these two surfaces, i.e. (1) area of the lateral surface and (2) area of its base.Let us consider a right circular cone to find its surface area.The lateral surface area of a right circular cone is Ï€ r lwhere,r is the radius of the circle at the bottom of the cone, andl is the lateral height of the coneThe surface area of the bottom circle of a cone is the same as for any circle, Ï€ r2Thus the total surface area of a right circular cone is: Ï€ r l + Ï€r2 OR Ï€ r (l + r)
Assuming that you're given the volume, the formula is V = 1/3 * pi * r^2 * h plug in r and V and solve for h
finding the volume of a cone
The formula for the volume of a right circular cone is: V = 1/3Bh where B is the base area and h is the height. Since the base is a circle, use pi r2, the formula for the area of a circle, to calculate the base area. Use 3.14 to approximate pi. The base area in this problem would be: 3.14(3)2 = about 28.26 sq. ft. Therefore the volume of the cone would be: 1/3(28.26)(9) = about 84.78 cu. ft.
For a right circular cone, by far the easiest way to find the surface areais to know the formula for the area, and apply it.The formula for the area of a right circular cone isArea = (pi x R) x (R + L)R = radius of the baseL = length of the slant from the base to the apex
Volume of a cone = 1/3*pi*radius2*height
Separate them into parts. First calculate the volume of the cylinder, then the cone and then add the results
Use the equation for the volume of a cone, replace the known height and volume, and solve the resulting equation for the radius.
