TOTAL SURFACE AREA OF FRUSTUM OF CONE AND PYRAMIDS

A frustum is the remaining part of cone or pyramid when the top part is cut off as shown below. Daily examples of frustums are buckets, lamps shades e.t.c.

Frustum of a cone

For Surface area of the frustrum of a pyramid, we sum up all areas of the faces that make up the frustum.

For Surface area of the frustum of a cone,

Total surface area of a Closed frustum = π(height × sum of radii) + area of top and base circles.

Total surface area of a Open frustum (bucket) = π(height × sum of radii) + area of circle.

Example 1:

Find the total surface area of a bucket 36cm in diameter at the top and 24cm at the bottom.
