Geometry Formulas: Surface Area & Volume
A formula is just a set of instructions. It tells you exactly what to do! All you have to do is look at the picture and identify the parts. Substitute numbers for the variables and do the math. Thats it!
Lets start in the beginning… Before you can do surface area or volume, you have to know the following formulas. RectangleA = b(h) TriangleA = b(h) 2 CircleA = π r² radius C = πd diameter
VOLUME FORMULAS Rectangular Prism v=l x w x h (lwh) Cube v= s ^3 Cylinder v= x r^2 x h PI =3.14
You can tell the base and height of a triangle by finding the right angle: TRIANGLES
CIRCLES You must know the difference between RADIUS and DIAMETER. r d
Lets start with a rectangular prism. Surface area can be done using the formula SA = 2 lw + 2 wl + 2 lw OR Either method will gve you the same answer. you can find the area for each surface and add them up. Volume of a rectangular prism is V = lwh
Example: 7 cm 4 cm 8 cm Front/back 2(8)(4) = 64 Left/right 2(4)(7) = 56 Top/bottom 2(8)(7) = 112 Add them up! SA = 232 cm² V = lwh V = 8(4)(7) V = 224 cm³
To find the surface area of a triangular prism you need to be able to imagine that you can take the prism apart like so: Notice there are TWO congruent triangles and THREE rectangles. The rectangles may or may not all be the same. Find each area, then add.
Example: 8mm 9mm 6 mm 6mm Find the AREA of each SURFACE 1. Top or bottom triangle: A = ½ bh A = ½ (6)(6) A = The two dark sides are the same. A = lw A = 6(9) A = The back rectangle is different A = lw A = 8(9) A = 72 ADD THEM ALL UP! SA = 216 mm²
SURFACE AREA of a CYLINDER. You can see that the surface is made up of two circles and a rectangle. The length of the rectangle is the same as the circumference of the circle! Imagine that you can open up a cylinder like so:
EXAMPLE: Round to the nearest TENTH. Top or bottom circle A = πr² A = π(3.1)² A = π(9.61) A = 30.2 Rectangle C = length C = π d C = π(6.2) C = 19.5 Now the area A = lw A = 19.5(12) A = 234 Now add: = SA = in²
There is also a formula to find surface area of a cylinder. Some people find this way easier: SA = 2πrh + 2πr² SA = 2π(3.1)(12) + 2π(3.1)² SA = 2π (37.2) + 2π(9.61) SA = π(74.4) + π(19.2) SA = SA = in² The answers are REALLY close, but not exactly the same. Thats because we rounded in the problem.
Find the radius and height of the cylinder. Then Plug and Chug… Just plug in the numbers then do the math. Remember the order of operations and youre ready to go. The formula tells you what to do!!!! 2πrh + 2πr² means multiply 2(π)(r)(h) + 2(π)(r)(r)
Volume of Prisms or Cylinders You already know how to find the volume of a rectangular prism: V = lwh The new formulas you need are: Triangular Prism V = ( ½ bh )(H) h = the height of the triangle and H = the height of the cylinder Cylinder V = (πr²)(H)
Volume of a Triangular Prism We used this drawing for our surface area example. Now we will find the volume. V = ( ½ bh )(H) V = ½(6)(6)(9) V = 162 mm³ This is a right triangle, so the sides are also the base and height. Height of the prism
Try one: Can you see the triangular bases? V = ( ½ bh )(H) V = ( ½)(12)(8)(18) V = 864 cm³ Notice the prism is on its side. 18 cm is the HEIGHT of the prism. Picture if you turned it upward and you can see why its called height.
V = (πr²)(H) V = (π)(3.1²)(12) V = (π)(3.1)(3.1)(12) V = in³ Volume of a Cylinder We used this drawing for our surface area example. Now we will find the volume. optional step!
Try one: 10 m d = 8 m V = (πr²)(H) V = (π)(4²)(10) V = (π)(16)(10) V = m³ Since d = 8, then r = 4 r² = 4² = 4(4) = 16
Here are the formulas you will need to know: A = lwSA = 2πrh + 2πr² A = ½ bh V = ( ½ bh )(H) A = π r²V = (πr²)(H) C = πd and how to find the surface area of a prism by adding up the areas of all the surfaces
