how do you find volume of an oblique cone?

if you know integration you can try that.

lol - i don't know integration...

google a formula then

the formula for volume of an oblique cone is still the same if it were a right cone... volume = (1/3) (area of base) (height)

how would you account for the tilt?

so base times height times .33?

i'm doing something wrong because my answer isnt anywhere close to my multiple choice answers

What is the original problem?

|dw:1338160583976:dw|

what are the dimensions (ie radius and height)?

base is 15 and height is 25

15 is the radius or diameter?

• 2,208.9 in3 • 1,472.6 in3 • 196.3 in3 • 4,417.9 in3 those are my options...

radius

alright, thank you

one moment

hmm not getting the correct answer if 15 is the radius, so it has to be the diameter, one more sec

you're correct jim... 15 is the diameter so 7.5 is the radius.

Area of base: A = pi*r^2 A = pi*7.5^2 A = pi*56.25 A = 56.25pi A = 56.25(3.14159) A = 176.7144375 So the area of the base (the circle) is approximately 176.7144375 sq inches ---------------------------------------- Volume of any cone V = (Area of base*Height)/3 V = (176.7144375*25)/3 V = 4417.8609375/3 V = 1472.6203125 So the volume is approximately 1472.6203125 cubic inches.

Note: Due to round off error and how accurate you make pi, the answer will vary slightly.

i see. basically i was trying to figure it out while forgetting that the bottom was a circle. thank you so much

sure thing
