Computing Volume of Three-Dimensional Solids (Part Five) Cone

in Aviation Mathematics

A solid with a circle as a base and with sides that gradually taper to a point is called a cone. [Figure 1-29] The formula for the volume of a cone is given as:

V = 1⁄3 × π × radius2 × height = 1⁄3 × π × r2 × H
