A cone is a special case of the pyramid; it's a pyramid with a circular base.

  • Given the radius of the base $r$ and the slant height of the cone $h$, the volume of the cone is $\dfrac{\pi r^2h}{3}$.

The surface area of a cone where r is the radius and h is the slant height is \pi(r^2)+\pi(r)(h). This article is a stub. Help us out by expanding it.
