The diameter of the top of a truncated cone 2016-01-24
Peter pose la question :
I am trying to calculate the diameter of a truncated cone given one diameter the height of the cone and a 10% taper from one end to the other. For example a butter churn is 18" tall and 9" in diameter at the base. the sides need to slope inward at 10%
What is the diameter at 9" and 18"

A label to cover a plastic cup 2012-10-23
Kevin pose la question :
I'm trying to make a label to cover the entire outer area or a plastic cup. I know there must be a way to figure out the dimensions needed, but I can't seem to figure it out. The circumference of the bottom of the cup is 21.4cm and the circumference at the top of the cup is 29.8cm. The cup is 14.5cm tall. What should the height of the arc from the plane connecting the two ends of the 21.4cm arc. I attached a diagram where x is the value I'm looking for. I'm guessing there is some simple relationship between the length of a line and the arc needed to turn that line into a perfect circle, but I don't know what it is. Can you figure this out and share it with me? Thanks.

Making a wind sock 2012-08-28
John pose la question :
I am trying to build a wind sock and need to be able to lay the shape out on cloth. I need the wind sock front opening (diameter) to be 3 1/2" and the rear opening diameter to be 1". The windsock needs to be 9 1/2" long. I tried using the example of the person trying to make a crayfish trap but got confused and could not figure out my numbers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A truncated cone: the central angle 2012-07-17
Tom pose la question :
I have researched several sites, including this one and am fairly confident I can do the calculations required to produce the two radii and the slant height for a truncated cone. I a somewhat confused by the central angle. Some sites indicate that it should never exceed 180 degrees while others do not. Different examples on your site seem to use this in two different ways in constructing a truncated cone. Sometimes the angle seems to indicate the section to be removed, while in other examples the angle seems to indicate the section to be saved. Since the two angles will always total 360 I am confused about how to use the info to calculate the minimum rectangle required to contain the pattern. I'm guessing that in some cases I may need to use the chord or sagitta to determine the desired height and width of the material. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Tom

A water tank is in the shape of a truncated cone 2012-03-08
Victoria pose la question :
Suppose you have a water tank in the shape of a truncated cone. The larger diameter is K, the smaller diameter is K/2, and the height is also K (all measured in meters). The force of gravity on an object of mass, m, is F=9.8m (measured in Newtons). The density of the water is 1000 kilograms per cubic meter. What is the volume of the tank and how much mass will the tank have when it is full?

Making a truncated cone 2011-02-18
lisa pose la question :
We need to make a cone that has the following dimensions.
14-3/8" diameter on large end
13-3/8" diameter on small end
4" tall

What are the dimensions I need to cut in order to make a cone with one seam?

Calibrating a conical tank 2011-02-05
Bill pose la question :
Hi, I have a round tank with tapered sides where I know the diameter at the top and bottom. Is there a formula I can use to calculate the volume by measuring from the bottom up the side (at the angle of the side) to any given point? Thanks, Bill

A 3D cardboard cupcake 2010-01-30
Margaret pose la question :
I'm an art student and I'm attempting to build a 3D cupcake out of cardboard. I want it to have a circular base of 8.5 inches and sides that are 7'' tall and slope outward so the top of the base is 29'. The top with the frosting would be a detachable lid made from a cone with a base circumfrance of 29". My problem is how to cut the side so they will slope out, I'm pretty sure there needs to be a curve, however I don't how to calculate the degree of it. Ideally I want the sides to be a single piece of cardboard. I also don't know how to calculate the arc needed to make a cone who's circular base's circumfrence is 29''.

The length of tape on a reel 2009-08-06
Philiip pose la question :
What diameter reel would be required to roll up 1000 meters of tape that is 0.01 mm thick such that the final role left 10 mm empty space between the top of the roll and the outside of the reel, the hup that the tape was wound on was 2 cm?

The dimensions of a larger cup 2009-05-23
Elizabeth pose la question :
Hey If i have a cup that holds a volume of 477mL and the bottom radius is 2.8cm and the top radius is 4.9cm and the height is 10cm. If i increase the volume by one and a half times what is the new measurements if the cup is directly proportional to the first one. Thank you

Motorcycle expansion chamber design 2006-11-14
David pose la question :
I'm interested in calculating cone information regarding motorcycle expansion chamber design for example. I guess it's called a truncated cone, from what I've read so far. If I know the center line height, small radius, and large radius of a truncated cone then, how can I calculate the angle (included angle?) the cone forms? I'd like to know the variations of the formula so I can calculate for angle, or length, or one of the diameters if I know the other two measurements.

A truncated cone 2006-05-28
Phil pose la question :
Hi, I am an art student and I am trying to make a "truncated cone" (ie: a cone with the top cut off) out of sheet metal. I need to design a template first and am having problems working out the angles. The truncated cone is 250mm high, 550mm wide at the bottom and 290mm wide at the top. Can you help?
