Volume of a cone, V = 1/3 πr2h

where r is the radius and h is the vertical height.

The vertical height can be found using pythagorean's theorem:

hyp2 = opp2 + adj2

hyp is the slant height

opp is the vertical height

adj is the base

Thus, 6.52 = opp2 + 2.52

subtract 2.52 from both sides

opp2 = 6.52 - 2.52

opp2 = 36

Take square root of both sides,

opp = 6

Therefore, Vertical height = 6

V = 1/3 π(2.5)2(6)

V = 12.5π
