I've certainly seen this approach when I took calculus many years ago, but I was hoping to attack it this way as a personal learning experience. Dec14 comment Volume of a Cone — Stuck On My Approach @RossMillikan, Thank you for your comment. I'm a little confused by your comment that a 3d integral won't have to do with rotation. In the case of a finding a rectangle with dimensions $A,B,C$, don't we take $\int_0^C AB dC = ABC$ for the volume? Instead of adding the individual areas along $dc$ can't we just add the individual areas of a triangle around an angle $d\theta$ to get the cone volume? That's what I imagine when I say "rotation" Dec13 awarded Student Dec13 awarded Editor Dec13 revised Volume of a Cone — Stuck On My Approach deleted 2 characters in body Dec13 asked Volume of a Cone — Stuck On My Approach
