Volume of cone calculator

The formula for the volume of a cone is:

V = (1/3)πr^2h

where r is the radius of the circular base, h is the height of the cone, and π is a constant equal to approximately 3.14.

To use the volume of cone calculator, follow these steps:

  1. Enter the value of the radius (r) in the input field.
  2. Enter the value of the height (h) in the input field.
  3. Click on the “Calculate” button to obtain the volume (V) of the cone.

For example, let’s say you have a cone with a radius of 5 cm and a height of 10 cm. To calculate its volume, you would follow these steps:

  1. Enter the value of the radius (r) as 5 cm.
  2. Enter the value of the height (h) as 10 cm.
  3. Click on the “Calculate” button.

The calculator would then use the formula to calculate the volume of the cone, which is approximately 261.8 cubic centimeters (cm^3).

Therefore, the volume of the cone with a radius of 5 cm and a height of 10 cm is 261.8 cm^3.

The formula for the volume of a cone is:

V = (1/3)πr^2h

where V is the volume, r is the radius of the circular base, h is the height of the cone, and π is a constant equal to approximately 3.14.

To calculate the volume of a cone, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the radius of the circular base of the cone. If the radius is not given, you can measure it using a ruler or a tape measure.
  2. Measure the height of the cone from the base to the top point.
  3. Substitute the values of the radius (r) and height (h) into the formula:

V = (1/3)πr^2h

  1. Simplify the formula using the order of operations (PEMDAS) by first squaring the radius and multiplying it by π, then multiplying the result by the height, and finally dividing the result by 3:

V = (1/3)πr^2h = πr^2h/3

  1. Calculate the value of the volume using the simplified formula and the values of the radius and height:

V = πr^2h/3

For example, let’s say you have a cone with a radius of 5 cm and a height of 10 cm. Here’s how to calculate its volume:

  1. Measure the radius of the circular base, which is 5 cm.
  2. Measure the height of the cone, which is 10 cm.
  3. Substitute the values of the radius and height into the formula:

V = (1/3)πr^2h = π(5 cm)^2(10 cm)/3

  1. Simplify the formula:

V = πr^2h/3 = π(5 cm)^2(10 cm)/3 ≈ 261.8 cm^3

Therefore, the volume of the cone with a radius of 5 cm and a height of 10 cm is approximately 261.8 cubic centimeters (cm^3).
