The Chamfer Weight(Mass) formula computes the mass or weight of a (light grey area) of a right circular cone with a frustum defined by base radius (a) and top radius (b) and height (h) in between where the cylindrical core (dark grey area) has been removed. This is also known as a chamfer. This formula is simply the volume of the frustum of a cone minus the volume of a cylinder that would inscribe it and then a mean density (mD) to develop the mass. If the object is on Earth (surface), the conversions to weight units are also reasonable.
Chamfer - Cored Cone
This formula computes the volume of the geometric shape based on the input parameters. With the computed volume, this formula then executes the simple equation below to compute the approximate mass of the object.
`mass = mu_(density) * volume`
The mean density (`mu_(density)`) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE (e.g. the `mu_(density) (water)` is 1000.0 kg/m³).
