`Volume = f( "a" , "b" , "h" , "t" )`

Enter a value for all fields

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:

- (
**a**) - outer radius of top surface - (
**b**) - outer radius of bottom surface - (
**h**) - height in between top and bottom - (
**t**) - thickness of the shell

**Cone Shell Volume**: The calculator computes the volume (**V**) in cubic meters (m^{3}). 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.

- Surface Area: cone surface area based on cone height and cone base radius
- Volume: cone volume based on cone height and cone base radius
- Mass: cone mass or weight as a function of the volume and mean density
- Frustum Surface Area: cone frustum surface area based on the two heights and two radii
- Frustum Volume: cone frustum volume based on the two heights and two radii
- Frustum Mass: cone frustum weight or mass based on the cone frustum volume and mean density
- Shell Volume: cone shell volume a.k.a. hollow cone volume
- Shell Mass: cone shell mass or weight a.k.a. hollow cone mass.
- Compute the total surface are of the frustum of a cone: This includes the top and bottom surfaces.
- Compute the lateral surface area (using L) of the frustum of a cone.

**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(a^{2}+a•b+b^{2})**
