Chapter 11.4 Volumes of Prisms and Cylinders

Vocabulary Volume = the space that a figure occupies. It is measured in cubic units.

Cavalieri’s Principle If two space figures have the same height and the same cross-sectional area at every level, then they have the same volume

Volume of a Prism The volume of a prism is the product of the area of a base and the height of the prism

Example #1 Find the volume of the rectangular prism

Example #2 Find 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

Example #3 Find the volume of the cylinder
