A cone is a three-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a flat base to a point called the apex. It can be thought of as a pyramid with a circular base.

The shape of a cone can be seen in a variety of everyday objects, such as traffic cones, ice cream cones, and party hats. The cone shape is also commonly used in architecture, with examples such as the pointed roofs of churches and the cone-shaped spires of certain buildings.

Easily calculate the volume of a cone with step-by-step guidance using our free online calculator below.

The formula for determining the volume of a cone is defined as:

\(V\) \(=\) \(\pi\) \(\cdot\) \(r^2\) \(\cdot\) \(\dfrac{h}{3}\)

\(V\): the volume of the cone

\(r\): the radius of the base

\(l\): the slant height of the cone

\(\pi\): A mathematical constant with an infinite decimal tail

The SI unit of volume is: \(cubic \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^3)\)

## Find \(V\)

Use this calculator to determine the volume of a cone when the length of the slant height and the radius of the base are given.
