# Volumes of Cones

In this worksheet, students calculate the volume of cones, given their height and base diameter. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Volume and Capacity

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

The formula for the volume of a cone, V, in terms of its base radius, r, is: This is similar to the formula for the volume of a cylinder, but remember to divide by 3.

Example

Calculate the volume of the cone shown below in cm3 to 3 significant figures. Diameter d = 8 cm

Radius r = 8 ÷ 2 = 4 cm

Height h = 10 cm

Volume = 1/3πr2h = π x 42 x 10 ÷ 3 = 167.55.... ≈ 168 cm3 (3 s.f.)
