## Volume of a Cone Lesson

### Cone Volume Formula

The formula for volume of a cone is given as:

**V = ^{1}⁄_{3}πhr^{2}**

Where *h* is the height and *r* is the radius.

INTRODUCING

### 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?

Solution:

- 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 **The rock formation's volume is**^{16}⁄_{3}π cubic meters.
