## NCERT Class 10 Maths Lab Manual – Surface Area of a Cone

**Objective**

To find the formula for the lateral surface area and total surface area of a right circular cone experimentally.

**Prerequisite Knowledge**

- Area of circle =
- Area of parallelogram = b x h (b =base, h = height).
- Circumference of circle =

**Materials Required**

A cone made of chart paper, a pair of scissors, geometry box, fevicol, cello tape.

**Procedure**

- Make a cone of pink chart paper having base radius r, slant height ‘l’ and height h.
- Cut the cone along slant height as shown in fig (i) as per dotted line and unroll it to get a sector, as shown in fig. (ii). Name this sector OAB.
- Identify the arc length AB of the sector OAB = circumference of the base of the cone. radius of the sector OAB = slant height of the cone. As shown in the fig. (ii).
- Cut the sector OAB into 4 small equal sectors, along dotted lines as shown in fig. (ii) and fill red colour in two sectors as shown.
- Arrange these small sectors to get a parallelogram as shown in fig. (iii).

**Observation**

- Base of parallelogram =x length of sector OAB =

× = - Altitude of parallelogram = slant height of cone = l
- Area of parallelogram = x l= Curved surface area of cone.
- Total surface area of cone = + area of circular base of cone.

= +

= (l+r)

**Learning Outcome**

Students will learn the concept to differentiate between the curved surface area and total surface area of a cone.

**Activity Time**

- Find lateral surface area of a cone in figure given.
- Find total surface area of a cone in figure given.
