Re: Examples of Cones in nature

I think you folks mean no point, no pressure. Pressure is a unit of force divided by a unit of area, so minimal area (eg. a the point of a cone) means maximal pressure. Power is a unit of work (which is itself a unit of force times a unit of distance), divided by a unit of time, so minimal time means maximal power. Since there is no time component in a cone, its shape is not directly related to power.
