The **Volume of a Cone** calculator computes the volume (V) of a cone with a circular base with a radius (r) and a height (h).

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**r**) Radius of the circle base - (
**h**) Height of the cone

**Cone Volume (V):** The calculator computes the volume of the cone (**V**) in cubic meters. However, the volume can be automatically converted to many other volume units (e.g. cubic inches or gallons) via the pull-down menu.

The formula for the volume of a cone is:

where:

- V is the volume of a cone
- r is the radius of the base of a cone
- h is the height of a cone

- Cone Surface Area based on cone height and cone base radius
- Cone Volume based on cone height and cone base radius
- Cone Mass or Weight as a function of the volume and mean density
- Cone Frustum Surface Area based on the two heights and two radii
- Cone Frustum Volume based on the two heights and two radii
- Cone Frustum Weight or Mass based on the cone frustum volume and mean density
- Cone Shell Volume a.k.a. hollow cone volume
- Cone Shell Mass or Weight a.k.a. hollow cone mass
- Moment of inertia of a cone shaped object based on mass and rotation axis
- Moment of inertia of a cone shaped object based on mass and distance to apex (rotation around apex)
- 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.

**Volume **is a three dimensional measurement of the amount of space taken up by an object. Volume units are cubic measurements for solid objects such as cubic inches and cubic meters. Fluids have separate volume units such as liters, fluid ounces, cups, gallons, and barrel.

The volume of an object can measured by the liquid it displaces or be calculated by measuring its dimensions and applying those dimensions to a formula describing its shape. Many such calculations are available in the following list of calculators.

In many cases, the calculators are for a column with a geometric shaped base and vertical sides. One basic formula for volume is area times a Height when the volume has vertical sides.
