Area and Volume

1. Area of Rectangle = L * W
2. Area of Square = S * S
3. Area of Triangle = (B * H) / 2
4. Area of Circle = 3.142 * (r * r)

I would like to find out is the volume for

1. square = cube
2. rectangle = rectangle prism
3. Triangle = pyramid
4. circle = sphere

Thank You.

Re: Area and Volume

To find the volume for square do I use the cube formula which a x a x a?. Same to find the volume of rectangle do I use the rectangle prism formula which is L * W * H? Same goes for triangle and circle...

Re: Area and Volume

hey the volume is not defined for rectangles, squares, circles as these are 2 dimensional figures ... it is for 3 dimensional figures ...................

so u cannot say anything on this

there is nothing like the volume of the square, .....

Re: Area and Volume

volume is not defined for rectangles, squares, circles

So does a triangle have a volume? I guess no smile

Re: Area and Volume

2d figures have no volume:  squares, rectangles, triangles, etc.  3d figures have volume:  rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, cubes, etc.  Things can be put inside 3d figures like a box, but what can a square hold inside of it?  Nothing.

Re: Area and Volume

Are the volumes zero or undefined? Isn't their height zero, so we get zero volume?
