Cone Area Calculator
Find the surface area of a cone with this Cone Area Calculator. This calculates the area of the top and the circle area on the bottom of the cone.
How do you find the surface area of a cone?
To find the surface area, use this Cone Area Formula:
(Pi x r2) + (Pi x r x S)
Pi = 3.1416
r = radius of the base
S = the slant length from the base to the tip of the cone
(the slant length is calculated from the height and the radius by
using the pythagorean theorem)
Example: If a cone has a height of 12 inches and a base radius of
4 inches, what is the surface area?
Calculate the slant length = 122 + 42 = S2
S = 12.6491
Cone Area = (3.1416 x 16) + (3.1416 x 4 x 12.6491)
Cone Area = 209.2194 square inches
