A bicone or dicone (bi- comes from Latin, di- from Greek) is the three-dimensional surface of revolution of a rhombus around one of its axes of symmetry. Equivalently, a bicone is the surface created by joining two congruent right circular cones base-to-base.
For a circular bicone with radius R and height center-to-top H, the formula for volume becomes
For a right circular cone, the surface area is
- where is the slant height.
