The Volume of the Shell of a Cone (Hollow Cone) calculator computes the volume of the shell of a cone. The volume is a function of the top radius (a), bottom radius (b), thickness (t) and height (h) in between.
INSTRUCTION: Choose your length units (e.g. inches or meters) and enter the following:
Cone Shell Volume: The calculator computes the volume (V) in cubic meters (m3). However this can be automatically converted to many other volume units (e.g. gallons or cubic feet) via the pull-down menu. To compute the Weight of the Shell of a Cone, CLICK HERE.
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)
