A cone is a three-dimensional geometric shape that narrows smoothly from a flat and typically circular base to a point, called the apex (vertex). A cone is a type of pyramidal shape. In ordinary usage in elementary geometry, cones are assumed to be right circular, where "right" means that the axis passes through the center of the base at right angles to its plane, and "circular" means that the base is a circle.
These volume calculations are provided for a circular cone with radius R and height H. It represents what is most commonly referred to as a "cone".

Method #2 – Volume of a Cone Formula
The volume of a cone can be calculated by using the formula:
In this formula, r represents the radius of the circle at base of the cone, h represents the distance from the base of the cone to its tip (height), π represents pi (approximately 3.14), and 1/3 represents one-third (or .3333 repeating).
