Volume of Solids
LESSON OBJECTIVE
By the end of the lesson the you should be able to find the
volume of a frustrum.
Introduction
Volume of a cone
To find the volume of the above cone you proceed as follows
Example 1
Find the volume of a cone whose slant height is 6cm and radius is 4cm.
We use pythagoras theorem to find height of the cone i.e.
= 3616= 20
h = 4.4721cm
h = 4.472cm
Therefore the area of cone = base Area x height
=74.94cm3
volume of a pyramid
The volume of the pyramid is worked our as follows
V =
Therefore, if the height is 12cm, the base length 5cm and width 4cm
Volume =
=128cm3

We use pythagoras theorem to find height of the cone i.e.
= 3616= 20
h = 4.4721cm
h = 4.472cm
Therefore the area of cone = base Area x height
=74.94cm3

The volume of the pyramid is worked our as follows
V =
Therefore, if the height is 12cm, the base length 5cm and width 4cm
Volume =
=128cm3
Volume of a Cone
To find the volume of the above cone you proceed as follows Example 1 Find the volume of a cone whose slant height is
6cm and radius is 4cm. We use Pythagoras theorem to find height of the cone i.e. = 3616= 20 h = 4.4721cm h = 4.472cm
Therefore the area of cone = base Area x height =74.94cm3
Volume of a frustum
A frustum is obtained ,when a cone or pyramid is cut along a plane parallel to the base shown below:
Example
Find the volume of the given frustum whose top radius is 6cm,and bottom
Radius is 2cm and the height is 10cm
Solution
To obtain the volume of the above frustum ABCD, we have to get the vertical ,height h of the smaller cone DCV.
We know that the smaller cone DCV is similar to the bigger cone ABV hence the ratio of their corresponding sides are
equal. Type equation here.
6h=2(10+h)
6h =20 + 2h
4h =20
H= = 5cm
Volume of cone = h
Volume of bigger cone ABV
= x 3.142 x 6 x 6 x 15
=565.56cm3
Volume of smaller cone DCV
x 3.142 x2 x 2 x5
=20.95 cm3
Therefore the volume of frustum =volume of bigger cone ‘ volume of smaller cone.
=(565.56 20.95) cm3
=544.61cm3
Exercise
1. find the volume of the lampshade the shape of a frustrum whose bottom radius 12cm,top radius 6cm and slant height
is 10cm
Diag(a)
Solution
Diag(b)
Complete the missing part of the cone.
Then find L the slant height of the small cone using the ratio of the corresponding of sides of the similar cones i.e.
= = =
12L= 6(10 +c)
12L=60 + 6L
6L = 60
L =10
STEP2
Using the information derived find Hthe vertical; height of the bigger cone.
H=
=
=
=16
STEP 3.
Find the vertical height of the small cone
Using the corresponding radios
= = =
12h =96
h= 8
step4:
volume of the bigger cone
= cm3
Volume of smaller cone
=
= cm3
Volume of the frustum = volume of bigger cone ‘ volume of smaller cone.
= 2413.056 – 301.632cm3
= 2111.424 cm3
2. Find the volume of the given frustum which has a square base of 6cm and a top has
Sides 2cm.the height of the frustum is 12cm.
Solution
To find the volume of the frustum using dotted lines and the vertec v, then find the volume of big and small pyramids.
(use different colour for dotted height)
Diag(d)
6h =2(12 +h)
6h =24 + 2h
4h =24
h =6
Therefore, height of the bigger pyramid =12 +6=18
volume of smaller pyramid=
=
= 216 cm3
Volume of smaller pyramid =
=
= 24 cm3
Volume of the frustum = volume of larger pyramid ‘ volume of small pyramid
=(216 ‘ 24) cm3
=192cm3
