Grade 8 Surface area 1 CONFIDENTIAL

The surface area of a rectangular solid is expressed in square units.
The surface area of a solid figure is the sum of the areas of all faces of the figure. An area of study closely related to solid geometry is nets of a solid. Imagine making cuts along some edges of a solid and opening it up to form a plane figure. The plane figure is called the net of the solid. The surface area of a rectangular solid is expressed in square units.

Surface Area of solid figures
In general, Surface Area of solid figures = 2 x area of the base +perimeter of the base x height If, B = area of the base P = perimeter of the base h = height SA = Surface Area Then, SA = 2B +Ph

If s is the length of one of its sides, then
Cubes A cube is a three-dimensional figure with all edges of the same length. s s If s is the length of one of its sides, then SA = 2(s2) + (4s)s = 6s2

Rectangular prism h h w w l l SA = 2B + Ph SA = 2(lw) + (2l + 2w)h
= 2(lw + lh + wh)
