### A solid cone has 1 vertex (called the apex), 1 circular face and 1 curved surface.

Note that the net of a cone is made up of a circle (which forms the base of the cone) and a sector of a circle. Notice how the sector angle can change as you vary the radius or the height of the cone. With thanks to the Geogebra Materials Team, whose Nets of a cone worksheet is available here.
