Geometry FormulasI was just curious, what is the formula for the surface area and volume, and respectively, for a pyramidal frustum and a conical frustum? I would prefer you to put it in LaTeX so I can easily understand it. Thanks!Note: later I may ask for other formulas, so don't put away your brain when you're done! #2 20130307 08:21:06
Re: Geometry FormulasOops, I almost forgot; I would also like a picture showing where the demensions are. Thanks...again! #3 20130307 20:10:12

You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130308 03:08:47
Re: Geometry FormulasThanks! Am I right? I am kind of confused. The volume formula though, is easy for me to understand. #5 20130308 08:08:02

Re: Geometry FormulasNext geometry question I've been wondering: I was thinking it was where is the larger radius, but what about the inner part? Is that included in the formla, or is it just the 'strict' outside? #9 20130309 12:37:08
