# Cone volume

## Volume

From ancient times, people needed to measure the amount of various substances. Bulk substances and liquids could be measured by filling them with vessels of a certain capacity, determining their quantity by volume. The concept of volume in solid geometry is introduced similarly to the concept of area in plane geometry. In plane geometry, we determined the area like this: the area of a polygon is the value of the part of the plane that the polygon occupies. To formulate the concept of volume similarly to this concept. The magnitude of the part of the space occupied by the geometric body is called the volume of this body. Volume is measured in "cubic" units.

## Cone

Cone — is a body in Euclidean space obtained by combining all the rays emanating from one point (vertex of the cone) and passing through a flat surface. Sometimes a cone is a part of such a body that has a limited volume and is obtained by combining all the segments connecting the vertex and the points of a flat surface (in this case latter is called the base of the cone, and the cone is called leaning on this base). If the base of the cone is a polygon, such a cone is a pyramid.
