Surface area is a two-dimensional property of a three-dimensional figure. Cones are similar to pyramids, except they have a circular base instead of a polygonal base. Therefore, the surface area of a cone is equal to the sum of the circular base area and the lateral surface area, calculated by multiplying half of the circumference by the slant height. Related topics include pyramid and cylinder surface area.
