volume of cone   =   ( 1/3 )( π * radius2 * height )

diameter  =  12 cm

radius  =   12 cm / 2

height  =  16 cm

Use these values for the radius and height to find the volume.

volume of cone   =   ( 1/3 )( π * (6cm)2 * 16cm )

volume of cone   =   ( 1/3 )( π * 36cm2 * 16cm )

volume of cone   =   ( 1/3 )( π * 36 * 16 )   cm3

volume of cone   =   ( 1/3 )( 576π )   cm3

volume of cone   =   192π   cm3

volume of cone   ≈   192(3.14)   cm3

volume of cone   ≈   602.88  cm3
