# Volume of Cone Formula

The volume of a cone is given by one-third multiplied by the area of its base multiplied by its height. The area of the base is given by the formula for the area of a circle.

Variable | Description |
---|---|

The volume of the cone. | |

The circle constant (tau) = 6.283185307 | |

The variable represents the radius of the base circle. | |

The height of the cone. |

The volume of a cone is given by one-third the area of its base multiplied by its height. In the case of the cone, the base is equal to the area of a circle.

This example demonstrates how to find the volume of a cone using this formula.
