Equilateral cone

Definition

A cone is a solid of rotation which is obtained by rotating a right triangle around one of cathetus.

Properties

  1. In a cone - the radius, height and apothem form a right triangle
  2. A cone is equivalent (has the same volume) to one third of a cylinder having the same length and radius and height as those of the cone
  3. An equilateral cone is a cone in which the diameter and the apothem have the same length

Cone Formulas
Data Formula
Volume V = (π r2 h) / 3
Radius V = √[ (3V) / (π h) ]
Height h = (3V) / (π r2)
Volume V = (Abase × h) / 3
Apothem a = √(h2 + r2)
Height h = √(a2 - r2)
Radius r = √(a2 - h2)
Total surface Stot = Abase + Slat
Lateral surface Slat = Stot - Abase
Lateral surface Slat = π r a
Radius r = Slat / (π a)
Apothem a = Slat / (π r)
Base area Abase = π r2
Base area Abase = Stot - Slat
