## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

The volume of a cone is 1/3 pi R^2 h.

Why then is the answer in units cubed. Certainly the h is contributing a third dimension but in general math you don't see this happening

X^2 * Z = X^3

but the below is true

X^2 * X = X^3

Can a radius be multiplied by a height to make the dimension increase?

What's going on here?

Thx
