Cones are less sensitive than the rod cells in the retina (which support vision at low light levels), but allow the perception of color because there are [normally] three kinds of cones, with different photopsins, which have different response curves (that is, they respond to varia...

The axis of the cone is the side about which the triangle revolves; the circle traced by the other side containing the right angle is the base; the hypotenuse in any one of its positions is a generator or generating line ; and the intersection of the axis and a generator is termed the vertex.
An oblique cone is the solid or surface traced out by a line which passes through a fixed point and through the circumference of a circle, the fixed point not being on the line through the centre of the circle perpendicular to its plane.
The subcontrary section of an oblique cone is made by a plane not parallel to the base, but perpendicular to the principal section, and inclined to the generating lines in that section at the same angles as the base; this section is a circle.

 CONIC SECTION - LoveToKnow Article on CONIC SECTION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
But in modern geometry, especially in the analytical and projective methods, the principle of continuity renders advisable the inclusion of the other forms of the section of a cone, viz, the cirde, and two lines (and also two points, the reciprocal of two lines) under the general title conic.
In analytical geometry the conic is represented by an algebraic equation of the second degree, and the species of conic is solely determined by means of certain relations between the coefficients.
Prior to his time, a right cone of a definite vertical angle was required for the generation of any particular conic; Apollonius showed that the sections could all be produced from one and the same cone, which may be either right or oblique, by simply varying the inclination of the cutting plane.

In geometry, a right circular cone is a cone whose base is a circle and whose apex is on a line perpendicular to the plane containing the base.
— the area of the side of the cone — equals the circumference of the base circle multiplied by the slant height of the cone (the distance from the apex to any point on the outside of the base).

A cone with its apex cut off by a plane parallel to its base is called a frustum.
The term cone is sometimes extended to more general shapes, such as the image of a common cone by an affine map —; which may turn the basis into an ellipse (producing an elliptical cone) and/or tilt the axis relative to the base (an oblique cone).
The center of mass (assuming the cone is filled with uniform density) is located on the axis, 1/4 of the way from base to apex.

However, because the geometry is axisymmetric the results for positive and negative angle of attack are identical when the solution is converged.
For supersonic flow the X-distance from the origin to the tip of a pointed nose cone can be small because the shock wave is attached to the nose cone tip and the region before the nose cone is not effected by the flow field around the model.
However, a blunt nose cone requires a much greater distance from the origin to the tip of the nose cone because a detached shock wave is present.

The area of a trapezoid is the arithmetic average (i.e., the half-sum) of its two parallel bases multiplied by its height (the height is the distance between the bases).
Background : The so-called general quadratic equation you are giving describes planar curves which are known as conic sections, for historical reasons (the "ordinary" ones are obtained as the the intersection of a plane and a full cone, defined as the surface generated by a straight line rotating around an axis that intersects it).
A conic section may be an ellipse (possibly a circle), a parabola, or a hyperbola.

The best method of generating a uniform shear field in a liquid is to contain the liquid between a flat plate and a rotor with a conical face of very small angle.
A solution to this for the measurement of particulate fluids is to cut away part of the tip of the cone.
This is an excellent solution to the problem for measurement purposes since it can be arranged that the torque generated by the truncated section, where the shear field is non-uniform, is a negligible part of the total torque.
