1 Rectangular Prisms and Cylinders VolumeRectangular Prismsand Cylinders
2 Rectangular PrismThe volume V of a rectangular prism is the product of the length l, the width w, and the height h.V = l(w)(h)The volume of a three-dimensionalfigure is the measure of space it occupies.It is measured by cubic unitsEx: centimeters cubed (cm³)heightwidthlength
3 Example 1 Find the volume of the rectangular prism. V = l(w)(h) V = 60 cm³3 cm4 cm5 cm
4 CylinderThe volume V of a cylinder is the area of the base times the height h.V = (Area of the base)(height)The base of a cylinder is a circle.You will have to find the area of the circle and multiply that by the height of the cylinder.It is measured by cubic unitsEx: centimeters cubed (cm³)
5 Example 2Find the volume of the cylinder. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.
