Formula for Surface Area and Volume

Surface Area and Volume Formula:

The surface area of a solid  geometric figure is the sum of the area of all surfaces of a figure. Volume of the figure gives the quantity of space occupied.

Surface area and volume formula of the geometric figure are given below

Answers:For a rectangular prism volume the formula is L x W x H, and the surface area is 2( LW + LH + WH). For prisms the volume formula is Area of the base times the height. The surface area is 2 X Area of base + # of sides X Width X Height. For pyramids the volume is 1/3 Base times height. Surface area is area of base + # of sides X 1/2 Width times slant height. A cube's volume is L^3, and its area is 6 times (L^2) A sphere is 4/3 pi r^3 for volume and 4/3 pi r^2 for surface I suggest you check these in a good geometry book, and find the rest.

Question:Forgot to bring my algebra II book home with me!

Answers:V = (4/3)*pi*r^3 A = 4*pi*r^2 You could have found these easily by using google.

Question:basically i need all the formulae of finding the surface areas and volumes of diff 3d shapes...eg. cuboid,pyramid,cylinder,sphere,diff prisms,cube,cone etc

Question:d=diameter c= curcumfrence r= radius b= base h= height l= length w= width I need the formulas for a rectangular prism, a triangular prism, a cylendar, a sphere, and a cone. I left my math notes at school so help would be greatly apprecieated. Its for a test review, and I cant remember the formulas, so if you have a way of remembering them, that'd be great too. Nothing nessicary though. Thanks so much to whoever can help me
