AREA/VOLUME
HELP
A number of named shapes are displayed in the menu list .
Depending on the chosen shape, the area, volume, surface area can be
calculated.
Menu Location :- Equations > Maths
Areas/Volumes.
Method of Operation :
Select the
appropriate shape from the selection list.
Enter numerical
values for the variables related to the selected shape.
Click the calculate
button and the solution will be displayed.
NOTE : In various shapes i.e. Pentagon, the radius
of circumscribed and inscribed circles can also be calculated. The
radius is calculated from the shapes measurements and is displayed
with the area of the shape.
Rectangle - b
represents width length, l represents breath length
Parallelogram - b
represents length, h: height.
Cylinder - r ; radius
Circle : r : radius
Sector – Angle ,
measured angle in Radians, r , Radius
Trapezium - a, b :
lengths , H : height
Cone - r : radius, h :
height
Sphere - r: radius
Cuboid - a, b ,c side
lengths of cube.
Pyramid – a, b :
base lengths.
Parabola -b : length, h
: height.
Tri. Prism - b : base
of triangle, a : height of triangle, h :
length of base.
Rhombus - a, h :
diagonal lengths.
d,d1 represents diameter measures.
h1,h2 represents height measures.
Units for AREA are always “squared”
i.e. m^^{2}, Volume are always “cubed” i.e. m^^{3}
