Volume

Triangular Prism(Right Angle Triangle)

The volume of a triangular prism, V =  AL

Where, A is the area of the cross-section of the prism.That is the area of one of the triangles,

And,      L is the length of the triangular prism.

Example

Pyramid

A pyramid is an object which has: a straight sided shape base (a squared, rectangular, trianglular base etc) and  triangular sides which meet at the top (called the apex).

The volume of a pyramid, V =  

Where, A is the area of the base of the pyramid

And,      h is the perpendicular height of the pyramid.

Example

Cylinder

The volume of a cylinder, V =  πr2h

Where, πr2 is the area of the circular cross-section

And,    h is the height of the cylinder.

Example

Volume of a cylinder, V = πr2h

Cube

The volume of a cube , V = L3

Where, L is the length of a side of the cube.

Example

Cuboid

The volume of a cuboid, V = Lwh

Where, L is the length of the cuboid

w is the width of the cuboid

And,       h is the height of the cuboid.

Sphere

A sphere is a three-dimensional object (such as a ball or the earth) with every point on the surface equidistant (halfway from) from the center.

The volume of a sphere, V =  πr3

Where, r is the radius of the sphere.

Example

Volume of a sphere, V =  πr3
