## Cone Volume Formula

**V = ^{1}⁄_{3}πhr^{2}**

Where

*h*is the height and

*r*is the radius.

### Example Problem

Solution:

1.) Let’s plug the given dimensions into the volume formula.

V = ^{1}⁄_{3}πhr^{2}

V = ^{1}⁄_{3}π(4)(2^{2}) = ^{16}⁄_{3}π

2.) **The rock formation’s volume is ^{16}⁄_{3}π cubic meters.**
