Surface Area of Right Circular Cone

Cones are assumed to be right circular, where right means that the axis passes through the centre of the base at right angles to its plane, and circular means that the base is a circle. Contrasted with right cones are oblique cones, in which the axis does not pass perpendicularly through the center of the base.[1] In general, however, the base may be any shape, and the apex may lie anywhere (though it is often assumed that the base is bounded and therefore has finite area, and that the apex lies outside the plane of the base). For example, a pyramid is technically a cone with a polygonal base.
