# Derive the formula for the volume of the frustum of a cone, given to you in Section 13.5,using the symbols as explained

Let ABC be a cone.

And,

A frustum DECB is cut by a plane parallel to its base

Now,

Let r1 and r2 be the radii of the ends of the frustum of the cone and h be the height of the frustum of the cone

= =

= =

= 1 - = 1 -

1 - =

= 1 – =

=

h1 =

Volume of frustum of cone = Volume of cone ABC - Volume of cone ADE

= r12h1 - πr22 (h1 – h)

= [r12h1 – r22 (h1 – h)]

= [r12 () – r22 ( - h)]

= [ - ]

= * h [ ]

= h []

= h [ r12 + r22 + r1r2]
