# How do you find the general equation of cone using C language?

If you mean the "general equation of a cone" to be the elliptical cone equation:

z = √( (x/a)2 + (y/b)2 )

... then the function in C to compute this given the proper variables is:

double genEqCone(const double x, const double y, const double a, const double b) {

const double X_A = (x/a);

const double Y_B = (y/b);

return sqrt((X_A * X_A) + (Y_B * Y_B));

}

### How do you find the volume of a cylinder that is smaller on one end?

To find the answer to this question you would have to know how to find the volume of a cone. First, find the angle of the side to the base to determine at what height a cone would be formed if the sides of the cylinder extended all the way up to a single point. This would be the height of the cone. Take this number and put into the equation Assuming you know the…

### How do you prove that a cone will fit into a cylinder exactlly 3 times?

If you look at the formulas for volume of a cone and volume of a cylinder you can see that a cone will fit in exactly three times if the height and radius of the cone and cylinder are equivalent. A cone has the equation: (1/3)*pi*(r^2)*h=Volume. And a cylinder has the equation: pi*(r^2)*h=Volume. With h equaling height and r equaling radius, you can see that 3*(Volume of a cone)=Volume of a cylinder. Therefore, the cone…

### How many lines of symmetry does a cone?

A triangle has only one line of symmetry but who ever says there are more than two is a idiot * * * * * A triangle, in general has NO line of symmetry, so who ever (or whoever) says there is one is and acts smart about it is a bigger idiot! That is even more so when the question is about a cone and not a triangle! What a loser! A cone, in…

### What is apical angle in cone?

The apex angle is the angle in a cone that the apex, or point, of the cone takes. This is measured from two opposite sides of the cone, which is found by drawing a line from the apex to the center of the circular base, then drawing a plane through this line and using the lines of the plane's intersection of the cone to measure the angle.

### A cone and sphere have the same volume the radius of the sphere and the base of the cone are 6cm what is the height of the cone?

Start by finding the volume of the sphere. You know it's radius is 6cm. The volume of the sphere with respect to the radius is: v = 4/3πr3 So you can plug that radius in to get the volume: v = 4/3π(6cm)3 v = 4/3π216cm3 v = 288πcm3 We know that the volumes of the sphere and the cone are equal, and that the base radius of the cone is six centimeters. Using those, we…

### How is the volume of a half full cone calculated?

The simple is to calculate the volume of the cone and subtract from the result the volume of the cone whose altitude is 1/2 the altitude of the original cone. This is easier said than done. The volume of a cone with circular base is (1/3)πr2s where r is the radius of the base and s is the altitude. The radius of the base of the empty part of the cone and hence its area…

### If plane intersects a right circular cone perpendicular to the axis of the cone then what is the shape of the 2dimensional figure formed from the intersection of the plane with the cone mean?

If this is a homework question, please consider trying to answer it yourself first, otherwise the value the reinforcement of the lesson by doing the homework will be lost to you. If plane intersects a right circular cone perpendicular to the axis of the cone then the shape of the 2 dimensional figure formed from the intersection of the plane with the cone is a circle. At the vertex of the cone, the circle becomes…

### With hurricanes What does the white cone on the track forecast cone signify?

The white cone indicates the range of paths a hurricane may take. With modelling it is possible to predict the general path a hurricane may take, but there is always some uncertainty. Not that the cone only indicates paths that the center of the storm may take. The effects of a hurricane can be felt well beyond this area, especially with larger storms.
