# What is a right circular cone?

## What is a right circular cone?

noun Geometry. a cone whose surface is generated by lines joining a fixed point to the points of a circle, the fixed point lying on a perpendicular through the center of the circle.

**What of the volume of a sphere of radius R will the volume of a right cylindrical cone with radius R and height R Be?**

The volume of the largest right circular cone that can be inscribed in a sphere of the radius R is (32/81)πR3 cubic units or (8/27) times the volume of the sphere.

**What is the circular cone of maximum volume inscribed in a sphere of a radius A?**

### What is a sphere in math?

sphere, In geometry, the set of all points in three-dimensional space lying the same distance (the radius) from a given point (the centre), or the result of rotating a circle about one of its diameters. The components and properties of a sphere are analogous to those of a circle.

**How is right circular cone formed?**

A right circular cone is formed by revolving the right-angled triangle about any one of its sides other than the hypotenuse. The base of the cone is in a circular shape. A right circular cone has a flat surface and curved surface, and they meet up at a point known as the vertex or apex of the cone.

**What is the difference between a cone and a right circular cone?**

Answer. A right circular cone is the cone in which the altitude or height is exactly perpendicular to the Radius or the circle. Whereas a cone is a 3D figure with one surface curved and a base surface as a circle.

## What is the volume of the sphere?

= 4/3 πr³

The formula for the volume of a sphere is V = 4/3 πr³.

**What is the volume of the largest cone that can be inscribed?**

Answer: Required volume of largest cone is 359.34 cm³.

**Is a sphere a circle?**

Definition of Circle and Sphere A Circle is a two-dimensional figure whereas, a Sphere is a three-dimensional object. A circle has all points at the same distance from its centre along a plane, whereas in a sphere all the points are equidistant from the centre at any of the axes.
