# Cone

KidzSearch Safe Wikipedia for Kids.

In common speaking and geometry, a **cone** is a solid object that one gets when one rotates a right triangle around one of its two short sides, the cone's axis. The disk made by the other short side is called the base, and the point of the axis which is not on the base is the cone's *apex* or *vertex*. An object that is shaped like a cone is *conical*.

An *ice cream cone* is a holder for ice cream that is in the shape of a cone and that one can eat.
