# Volume of a Cone

Lesson Objective
In this lesson, we will learn about the volume of a cone.
In this lesson, we will:
1. Learn about the formula for the volume of a cone and see how it is related to the volume of a cylinder.
2. Look at an example on using the formula to calculate the cone's volume
3. Look at another example on using the formula to calculate the base radius of a cone
The study tips and math video below will explain more.

# Study Tips

Tip #1
In the previous lesson, we learned that the volume of a cylinder is  πr2h. Now, the volume of a cone is one third of the cylinder's volume.

Hence, for a cone with height h and base radius r, the volume, V of the cone will be:

where π is a number that is approximately equals to 3.14.

The math video below will give more explanation on this formula. Also, we will see some examples on how to use it.
