### What is radius squared multiplied by height?

The above formula x pi is used to determine the volume of a
CYLINDER.
If you are looking for the formula to determine the volume of a
CONE, then take the answer from the above formula, multiply times
pi and divide by 3. IOW, the formula to determine the volume of a
cone is (pi x radius squared (of the base) multiplied by height)
divided by 3.
Volume of a CYLINDER = (pi x r2 x h)
Volume of a CONE = 1/3(pi x r2 x h)
