Now the area of each triangle = `1/2` × base of each triangle × l
But the curved portion of the figure makes up the perimeter of the base of the cone and the circumference of the base of the cone = 2πr, where r is the base radius of the cone.
Curved Surface Area of a Cone = `1/2 × l × 2πr = πrl`
where r is its base radius and l its slant height.
Note that `l^2 = r^2 + h^2` (as can be seen from in following fig. by applying Pythagoras Theorem. Here h is the height of the cone.
Therefore, l = `sqrt (r^2 + h^2)`
Now if the base of the cone is to be closed, then a circular piece of paper of radius r is also required whose area is `πr^2`.
Total Surface Area of a Cone = πrl + `πr^2` = πr(l + r)

A buoy is made in the form of hemisphere surmounted by a right cone whose circular base coincides with the plane surface of hemisphere. The radius of the base of the cone is 3.5 metres and its volume is two third of the hemisphere. Calculate the height of the cone and the surface area of the buoy, correct to two places of decimal
The circumference of the base of a 10 m high conical tent is 44 metres. Calculate the length of canvas used in making the tent if the width of the canvas is 2m. (Take π = 22/7)
A conical tent is accommodate to 11 persons each person must have 4 sq. metre of the space on the ground and 20 cubic metre of air to breath. Find the height of the cone.
A hemispherical bowl of diameter 7.2 cm is filled completely with chocolate sauce. This sauce is poured into an inverted cone of radius 4.8 cm. Find the height of the cone.
The following figure represents a solid consisting of a right circular cylinder with a hemisphere at one end and a cone at the other. This common radius is 7 cm. The height of the cylinder and cone are each of 4 cm. Find the volume of the solid.
A metallic cylinder has a radius of 3 cm and a height of 5 cm. It is made of metal A. To reduce its weight, a conical hole is drilled in the cylinder, as shown and it is completely filled with a lighter metal B. The conical hole has a radius of `3/2` cm and its depth is `8/9` cm. Calculate the ratio of the volume of the metal A to the volume of metal B in the solid.
