The Weight of a Cone Shell calculator computes the mass (weight) of the shell of a right circular cone or cone frustum defined by a top radius (a) and base radius (b), height (h) in between, the thickness (t) and the mean density (mD).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Cone Shell Weight (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, simply let the top radius (a) remain as zero.
Note: the frustum is created by parallel planes that go through the cone and are normal (perpendicular) to the center axis of the cone. The planes are separated by the height (h). The formula for the Volume of the Frustum of a cone is as follows:
V = 1/3 • π • h(a2+a•b+b2)
