Lateral Area of a Cone Formula Online - Tutorpace

# Lateral Area of a Cone Formula

## Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

The formula for finding the lateral area of a cone is

L.A. = pi * r * l

where pi is a constant having value 22/ 7,

r is the radius of the cone’s base,

l is the slant height of the cone.

The slant height l of the cone can be found by using the formula

l = ( r2 + h2 )1/2

Where h is the height of the cone.

Example 1: Find the lateral area of a cone having radius = 8 cm, slant height = 14 cm.

Solution : We are given,

slant height l = 14 cm

The formula for lateral area of a cone is L.A. = pi * r * l

Putting the values in the formula,

L.A. = 22/7 * 8 * 14 = 2464 / 7 = 352

Thus the lateral area of the given cone is 352 square centimeters.

Example 2: Find the lateral area of a cone with radius = 6 cm, height = 8 cm.

Solution:

Slant height  l = ( r2 + h2 )1/2

l = ( 62 + 82 )1/2

l = ( 36  + 642 )1/2

l = ( 100 )1/2

l = 10

Now we can find the lateral area using the formula,

L.A. = pi * r * l

L.A. = 22/7 * 6 * 10 = 1320 / 7

L.A. = 188.6

Hence the lateral area the cone is 188.6 square centimeters.
