The volume of this cone is 148.44025 cubic feet.

The volume of this cone is 37,699 cm3

finding the volume of a cone

Volume of a cone = 1/3*pi*radius2*height

The simple is to calculate the volume of the cone and subtract from the result the volume of the cone whose altitude is 1/2 the altitude of the original cone. This is easier said than done. The volume of a cone with circular base is (1/3)πr2s where r is the radius of the base and s is the altitude. The radius of the base of the empty part of the cone and hence its area can be found by using the pythagorean theorem

the is more volume in the cone

If the area of the base and the height of the cylinder and the cone are the same, then the volume of the cone will always be one third of the volume of the cylinder.

multiply the volume of the cylinder by 1/3. whatever you get is the volume of the cone

The volume of a cone is one third the volume of a cylinder of the same height. The volume of a cylinder is πr2h, so the volume of a cone is 1/3πr2h.

Cone volume = ( pi * radius2 * height ) / 3

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

Volume of a cone = 1/3*base area*height

Volume of a cone = 1/3*base area*height

Volume of a cone = 1/3*pi*radius2*height

The cone has 1/3 of the volume of the cylinder.

The volume of a cone is 1/3 of the volume of a cylinder with the same radius and height

A large cone has a greater volume than a small frustum while a small cone has a smaller volume than a large frustum
