A Cone is a three-dimensional geometric shape which diminishes in thickness towards one point from a circle-like base.
Cones are referred to as "right circular", which means that the base is a circle and the central axis is at right angles to the base, i.e. the center axis runs at 90 degrees to the circular base. Thus, the radius of the base and the central axis together with any side of the cone form a right angled triangle.
The Cone Calculator is able to save calculations to a table by clicking the "Add to Table" button.
The following algorithms are included into the Cone Calculator:
Slope Height (s) = √(r2 + h2)
Surface area of base (B) = πr2
Lateral surface rea (L) = πrs
Total area = L + B
Volume = (1/3)πr2h
