Simply enter the base radius and height of the cone to calculate the volume of the cone. Enter multiple cone values and the calculator will add your cone volume results to allow calculation of several cones in one calculator.
What is a Cone?
A cone is an three-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a base (usually flat and circular) to a point called the apex or vertex.
The Volume of an Cone is calculated using the following equation:
- (Base x Height) ÷ 3
[with Base being equal to pi r2 which is the equation for the volume of a circle. r is the Radius which is the distance from the centre of the circle to its outer edge]
Note: Remember to use the same measurement unit for each dimension when calculating the volume of an object.
The volume of solid objects are measured in:
- cubic feet
- cubic meters
- cubic yards
The volume of liquids are measured in:
The online Cone calculator below will automatically calculate the volume of the Cone based on the measurements you enter.
You will also have a running total which builds as you enter new dimensions into the volume calculator.
