# Cone Volume Calculator

The only thing that is needed to work out the volume of the cone is to input the values of the radius of the base and the height of the cone.

For the purpose of obtaining results for several cones simultaneously, you can introduce into the calculator the multiple values of the cone. The calculator then will automatically sum the cone volume results which provides the possibility to carry out calculations of several cones in one calculator.

## The background information and the basic definition of a cone The basic definition of a cone is a geometrical shape that has three dimensions and subsides from usually a flat and circular base to its highest point which is known as the apex or vertex.

The following formula can be applied to work out the Volume of the Cone:

• (Base times Height) ÷ 3
[where Base is found by using the formula of the area of a circle which is pi r2. r represents the Radius which is a straight line that runs from the centre of a circle to any point on the circumference.]
• OR
• Cone Volume = 1/3 x π x Radius2 x Height

Note: It is essential to keep in mind that it is crucial to use the same measurements units for each particular dimension whilst finding the volume of any object.

Units of the solid objects volume used:

• feet cubed
• meters cubed
• yards cubed

Units of the volume of liquids:

• litres
• quarts
• pints
• gallons

The Cone volume will be calculated electronically by the online Cone calculator as long as you input the values needed.

The user will always be able to see a running total that is summed from the new dimensions that are inserted into the volume calculator.
