Is there an easy way to find volume and surface area of all prisms, pyramids, cones, cylinders, and spheres?
The surface area and volume of solids like prisms, pyramids, cones, cylinders, and spheres can be determined by using the following formulae. Only the required values for the variables in the formulae need to substituted with the values available.
Volume = Area of the base * height = length* width* height
Surface area = 2*( length* width + length* height + width* height)
Volume = (1/3)*Surface area of base * height
Surface area = (1/2)*perimeter of base * slant height
Volume = (1/3)*pi*r^2*h
Surface area = pi*r*l + pi*r^2 , here l is the slant height
Volume = area of base * height = pi*r^2*h
Surface Area = 2*pi*r^2 + 2*pi*r*h
Volume =( 4/3)* pi*r^3
Surface Area = 4*pi*r^2
