# Surface Area of Right Cone Calculator

The cone is **one **of the **simplest **three-**dimensional **figures in **Geometry**. It is pretty simple to solve this **figure **and find its area and **volume**. But it also has some particular **types **that may be hard to solve **especially **if you are **unable **to understand them. One of those **common **types is Right Cone.

Finding its area **might **be harder if you are **not **using this **surface area of the right cone calculator**. This maths calculator has a simple interface that you can **understand **easily to use for **solving **questions. It enables you to **complete **your **assignments **within a short time and with **1005 **accuracy.

## What is the surface area of the right cone?

A right **cone **is a specific **type **of cone in which the **center **of the circular **base **of the cone and its **vertex **lie on the same **line**. It means that if the **axis **is drawn from the **vertex**, it will meet the center of the **circular **part of the **cone**. The surface area of a **right **cone is the total area **covered **by it.

**Undoubtedly**, it is a three-dimensional figure but the **area **involves only **two **dimensions. It is the region **surrounded **by the circular base and the **lateral **(curved) surface of the **cone**.

### How to find the surface area of the right cone?

To **understand **the method to **find **the **surface **area of the right **cone**, you should **need **to understand the **terms **related to it first.

**Vertex**: It is the point where both lateral surfaces of the cone meet.**Base**: A cone has a circular base that surrounds it completely and both lateral surfaces are connected with it.**Axis**: The straight perpendicular line drawn from the vertex to the center of the cone is called its axis.

**Now**, you are **aware **of the basic **details **of the **right **cone. Let us show you the **formula **that you can **use **to find the surface area of the **right **cone.

The **surface **area of the right cone = Area of circular **Base** + Curved Surface **Area**

= š¯¯ær^{2}+ š¯¯ærl

We can also write it as

= š¯¯ær (r + l) Sq. units

In the **formula**, “l” represents the curved side’s **length **while “**r**” represents the **radius **of the circular **side**.

**Example 1:**

Find the surface area of the right cone if its radius is 6m and lateral length is 7m.

**Solution:**

To find the answer, we only have to put the values in the above formula.,

Surface area of the right cone =3.14(6) (6 + 7) m^{2}

= 245.044 m^{2}

### How to use the surface area of the right cone calculator?

Using this **online **tool of Calculator’s Bag is pretty simple because of its user-**friendly **interface. Here are the **steps **you have to **follow **to **use **it.

- Input the radius measurement in the first input box
- Input the value of slant height in the second input box
- This calculator will automatically perform the calculation and show you the answer for surface area.

### FAQ | Surface Area of a Right Cone

**What is the surface area of the right cone?**

The surface area of the right cone is the total area covered by its circular base and lateral side.

**What is the volume and surface area of a cone?**

The volume is the total space covered by the cone including all three dimensions while the surface area is the total area covered by its plane surfaces.

**What is the right cone? **

A specific type of cone in which the center of the circular base and its vertex lies on the same line.

**What is the difference between a right cone and other types of geometric shapes? **

Every geometrical shape has a specific shape and dimension. A cone is a specific three-dimensional figure in geometry that has a circular base and lateral sides.

**What number do you need to determine the surface area of a right cone? **

We only need the measurement of the radius and lateral side to find the surface area of the right cone.

**How do you prove the surface area of a right cone? **

We can prove the surface area of a right cone by adding the surface area of the lateral side and circular base.
