Surface Area and Volume of Pyramids, Cones, and Spheres is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Geometry and Measurement.
How Do You Find the Surface Area of Pyramids and Cones?
The surface area of a pyramid is calculated by summing the area of each face and the surface area of the cone is found by summing the area of the curved surface and the circular base.
Watch this next video to learn how to calculate the surface area of pyramids and cones.
This next video is Part 2 of the previous video.
Finding the Volume of a Pyramid and Cone
A pyramid fits inside a prism exactly three times. The videos below explain how to find the volume of a pyramid and cone.
What About Spheres?
Watch this next video to learn how to calculate the volume and surface area of a sphere.
The following video will show you how to calculate the volume of a hemisphere by using the volume of a sphere formula.
