Volume of a Cone

Volume of a Cone

How to find the volume of a cone: formula, example, and its solution.

Formula

V = (1/3)*pi*(r^2)*h. V: volume of a cone, r: radius of the base, h: height of the cone

V = (1/3)πr2h

V: volume of a cone
r: radius of the base
h: height of the cone

This formula is the special version
of the pyramid's volume:
V = (1/3)Bh

In this case, B = πr2.

Example

Find the volume of the given cone. r = 3, h = 4.

r = 3, h = 4

V = (1/3)⋅π⋅32⋅4
