11-4 Volumes of Prisms and Cylinders

Exploring Volume The volume of a solid is the number of cubic units contained in its interior. Volume is measured in cubic units, such as cubic meters (m 3 ).

Volume of a Prism The volume of a prism is the product of the area of the base and the height of the prism. V = Bh

Finding the Volume of a Prism What is the volume of the rectangular prism?

 What is the volume of the rectangular prism?

 What is the volume of the triangular prism?

Volume of a Cylinder The volume of a cylinder is the product of the area of the base and the height of the cylinder. V = πr 2 h

Finding the Volume of a Cylinder What is the volume of the cylinder in terms of π?

 What is the volume of the cylinder at the right in terms of π?

Composite Figures A composite space figure is a three-dimensional figure that is a combination of two or more simpler figures. What is the approximate volume of the aquarium?
