## 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.

= 36-16= 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

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. = 36-16= 20 h = 4.4721cm h = 4.472cm Therefore the area of cone = base Area x height =74.94cm3Volume 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 H-the 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
