# Volume&Surface Area

### Formulas for various measurements of geometric solids

Question | Answer |
---|---|

Formula to calculate volume of any prism | V=Bh Volume = Area of the base x height |

The variable B in Volume and Surface Area formulas | B = area of the base |

Formula to calculate volume of a cylinder | Volume = pi x radius squared x height |

Formula to calculate volume of a pyramid | V = 1/3Bh Volume = 1/3 Area of the base x height |

Formula to calculate volume of a cone | V = 1/3 pi x radius squared x height |

Formula to calculate volume of a sphere | V = 4/3 pi x radius cubed |

Formula to calculate Surface Area of a prism | S = 2B + Ph Surface Area = 2 x Area of the base + Perimeter of the base x height |

Formula to calculate Surface Area of a pyramid | S = B + 1/2P l Surface Area = Area of the base + 1/2 perimeter of the base x slant height |

Formula to calculate Surface Area of a cone | S = pi x radius squared + pi x radius x slant height |

Formula to calculate Surface Area of a cylinder | S = 2 x pi x radius squared + 2 x pi x radius x height |

variable used to represent height | h |

variable used to represent slant height | cursive l |

variable used to represent length | l |

variable used to represent width | w |

how can you identify the base and height of a polygon | the segments will intersect at a right angle |

Formula used to calculate surface area of a sphere | S = 4 x pi x radius squared |

Formula used to calculate area of a triangle | A = 1/2bh or A = 1/2lw |

Formula used to calculate area of a parallelogram | A = bh or A = lw |

What is the difference between a parallelogram and a trapezoid | A parallelogram has 2 pairs of parallel sides and a trapezoid has exactly 1 pair of parallel sides |

Formula used to calculate area of a circle | A = pi x radius squared |

The difference between the variables b and B | b = base & B = Area of the base |

The flat surfaces of a 3-dimensional solid | Faces |

A line segment where two faces meet | Edge |

A point where two or more edges meet | vertex |
