The formula for the volume of a cone can be found using the formula for the volume of a cylinder with the same base and height. The volume of a cylinder can be found using the area of its base. The base is a circle and multiplying its area by the height h of the cylinder will give the volume of the cylinder. A cylinder can be viewed as multiple circular base shapes stacked on top of each other.
The formula for the area of the base is_______ where r represents the radius.
The formula for the volume of the cylinder is_________
A cone's volume is__________ of a cylinder. Therefore, the formula for the volume of a cone is 1/3 πr2h.
