Surface Area of a Right Circular ConeDate: 9/5/95 at 20:44:1 From: Estelle E. Klein Subject: algebra class Could you please tell me the formula for finding the surface area of a right circular cone? Date: 9/6/95 at 11:12:7 From: Doctor Ken Subject: Re: algebra class Hello! I think the easiest formula to use is Pi R L, where L is the slant height. I.e, if we have height H, L = Sqrt{R^2 + H^2}. If you also want the area of the base of the cone, that's Pi R^2. - Doctor Ken, The Geometry Forum |
