Cones - Overview
Cone Facts: Notice these interesting things:
So a cone's volume is exactly one third ( 13 ) of a cylinder's volume.
Different Shaped Cones:
This is almost a cone, but the top is chopped off (called a "truncated cone").
Also it has a wider base added so it doesn't fall over!
- It has a flat base
- It has one curved side
- The pointy end of a cone is called the apex
- The flat part is the base
- An object shaped like a cone is said to be conical
- The Base Area = π × r2
- The Side Area = π × r × s
|The volume of a cylinder is:||π × r2 × h|
|The volume of a cone is:||1/3 π × r2 × h|
