A Cone is a Rotated Triangle
A cone is made by rotating a triangle!
The triangle has to be a right-angled triangle, and it gets rotated around one of its two short sides.
The side it rotates around is the axis of the cone.
Volume of a Cone vs CylinderThe volume formulas for cones and cylinders are very similar:
|The volume of a cylinder is:||π × r2 × h|
|The volume of a cone is:||π × r2 × (h/3)|
So, the only difference is that a cone's volume is one third (
So, in future, order your ice creams in cylinders, not cones, you get 3 times more!
