The Weight of a Cone calculator computes the mass (weight) of a right circular Frustum of a Cone Complete Cone (a=0) cone or cone frustum defined by a top radius (a) and base radius (b), height (h) in between, using the mean density (mD) and volume to calculate the mass of the object. The frustum of a cone is also known as a truncated cone.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred units (e.g. feet or meters) and enter the following:
Weight of a Cone (M): The calculator computes the mass/weight of the cone in kilograms. However, this can be automatically converted to numerous other mass/weight units (e.g. pound, tons) via the pull-down menu. Note: For a complete cone, simple let the top radius (a) remain as zero.
