Volume of a Cone Lesson
Cone Volume Formula
The formula for volume of a cone is given as:
V = 1⁄3πhr2
Where h is the height and r is the radius.
Volume of a Cone Example Problem
A cone-shaped rock formation is measured to have a height of 4 meters and a radius of 2 meters. What is the volume of the rock formation in cubic meters?
- Let's plug the given dimensions into the volume formula.
- V = 1⁄3πhr2
- V = 1⁄3π(4)(22) = 16⁄3π
- The rock formation's volume is 16⁄3π cubic meters.
