23 June 2020 0 The diagram above is a cone and the volume of a cone is given as: V = 1/3 πr2h.

Where r and h are the radius and height of the cone respectively.

Also, since the base of the cone is a circle, its circumference is given as: C = 2πr

Thus, 31.416 = 2πr

Divide both sides by 2π

r = 31.416/2π

r = 5

Therefore, V = 1/3 π(5)2(13)

V = 340 cubic centimeter Share ### Related Tags
