    Okay so the 3 points make a triangle, and I know that when it's rotated it'll make a cone but I need to elaborat

    points A and B are both on x -axis and Point C is at y = 3 directly above the origin

    Its because its a right angle triangle with the right angle at the origin that it forms a cone when rotated around y-axis.
