Making a cone from a circle sector

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

The left picture shows a sector of a circle (with another sector cut out.) If you roll it up and tape the straight sides together, you will get a cone. The right pictures show side and top views of the cone you will get.

Move the blue point to adjust the angle of the sector.
