Volume of cones

The volume of a cone is given by:

 Volume = $\frac{1}{3}$ Area of base x Height V=$\frac{1}{3}$$\pi$r2H where r is the radius of the circle and H is the height of the cone.

The formula for the volume of a cone can be determined from the volume formula for a cylinder because it takes the volume of three cones to equal one cylinder.

Find the volume of the cone:

 V=$\frac{1}{3}$$\pi$r2H V=$\frac{1}{3}$$\pi$52·10 = $\frac{1}{3}$·3.142x52x10 V = 261.83 cm3

What is the volume of this cone when r=7, and h=24?

Use $\pi$=3.14
