RELATIONSHIPS
To be proficient in math,
you need to look closely
to discern a pattern
or structure.
Use this information to write a formula for the volume V of a pyramid.
Finding the Volume of a Cone
Work with a partner. The cone and
the cylinder have the same height
and the same circular base.

divide this triangular prism into three triangular pyramids.

You can combine triangular pyramids 1 and 2 to form a pyramid with a base that is a

bases of triangular pyramids 1 and 2 are congruent. Similarly, you can divide any cross
section parallel to ▱JKNM into two congruent triangles that are the cross sections of
triangular pyramids 1 and 2.
By Cavalieri’s Principle, triangular pyramids 1 and 2 have the same volume. Similarly,
using pyramid R, you can show that triangular pyramids 1 and 3 have the same
volume. By the Transitive Property of Equality, triangular pyramids 2 and 3 have
the same volume.
The volume of each pyramid must be one-third the volume of the prism, or V = —13 Bh.
You can generalize this formula to say that the volume of any pyramid with any base is
equal to —13 the volume of a prism with the same base and height because you can divide
any polygon into triangles and any pyramid into triangular pyramids.

Finding Volumes of Cones
Consider a cone with a regular polygon inscribed in the base. The pyramid with the
same vertex as the cone has volume V = —13 Bh. As you increase the number of sides of
the polygon, it approaches the base of the cone and the pyramid approaches the cone.
The volume approaches —13πr 2h as the base area B approaches πr 2.
Core Concept
Volume of a Cone

34. MODELING WITH MATHEMATICS During a chemistry
lab, you use a funnel to pour a solvent into a flask.
The radius of the funnel is 5 centimeters and its height
is 10 centimeters. You pour the solvent into the funnel
at a rate of 80 milliliters per second and the solvent
flows out of the funnel at a rate of 65 milliliters
per second. How long will it be before the funnel
overflows? (1 mL = 1 cm3)
39. MAKING AN ARGUMENT In the figure, the two
cylinders are congruent. The combined height of
the two smaller cones equals the height of the larger
cone. Your friend claims that this means the total
volume of the two smaller cones is equal to the
volume of the larger cone. Is your friend correct?
35. ANALYZING RELATIONSHIPS A cone has height h
and a base with radius r. You want to change the cone
so its volume is doubled. What is the new height if
you change only the height? What is the new radius
if you change only the radius? Explain.

area as a right cone with equal radius and height. Find
the volume of this solid. Explain your reasoning.
