Mensuration II
(Surface Area and Volume)
Cuboid and Cube
Here we will introduce two rectangular solids,
namely, a cuboid and a cube. Before going into
the details of cuboid and cube, let me introduce a
term Parallelopiped to you (See the figure given
below).
A solid bounded by three pairs of parallel plane
surfaces is called a parallelopiped. The plane surfaces
are known as the faces of the parallelopiped.
Each face of a parallelopiped is a parallelogram
and opposite faces are congruent ie equal in all
respects.
Any two adjacent faces of a parallelopiped meet
along a line segment which is called an edge. A
parallelopiped has 12 edges. Point of intersection
of two edges is called a vertex or a corner. A
parallelopiped has 8 vertices or corners. Note that
at each vertex, three edges and three faces meet.

(i) Cuboid
A cuboid is a solid bounded by six rectangular plane
regions. In other words, A parallelopiped whose faces
are rectangles and adjacent faces are perpendicular is
called a rectangular parallelopiped or a cuboid.
The figure given below represents a cuboid. It
should be noted t hat it is not a plane figure,
although it is drawn on a sheet of the paper.

## Note: A word cuboid is used for both, the hollow

cuboid and the solid cuboid. In any use of
the word, the context in which it is used,
will make the meaning clear.

(ii) Cube
A cuboid whose length, breadth and height are all
equal is called a cube.
As with a cuboid, the word cube is also used
for both the hollow cube and the solid cube. In
any use of the word, the context in which it is
used, will make the meaning clear. Each edge of a
cube is called its side.

Important Formulae
(i) Volume of a Cuboid and a Cube
(a) Volume of a Cuboid : The volume V of a cuboid
of length = l cm, breadth = b cm and height = h cm
is given by
V = (l b h) cm3
Note: 1. While finding the volume of a cuboid, its
lengt h, br eadt h and height must be
expressed in the same units.
2 . From the above formula, we also obtain
that

and

## (b) Volume of a Cube : We know that a cube is a

special type of a cuboid whose length, breadth and
height are all equal.
So, the volume V of a cube of side (or edge) l cm
is given by
V = (l l l) cm3 or V = l3 cm3
or, V = (side)3

564
(ii) Surface Area of a Cuboid and a Cube
(a) Surface Area of a Cuboid : Total surface area
height + length height) cm 2
Note:For the calculation of surface area of a cuboid,
the length, breadth and height must be
expressed in the same units.
(b) Surface Area of a Cube : Since all the six faces
of a cube are squares of the same size ie for a cube
we have l = b = h. Thus, if l cm is the length of the
edge or side of a cube, then surface area of the
cube = 2 (l l + l l + l l) = 2 3l2 = 6l2 = 6 (Edge)2.

## (iii) Diagonal of a Cuboid and a Cube

(a) Diagonal of a Cuboid : If the edges of a cuboid
be l, b and h units of length, then its diagonal is
l 2 b 2 h 2 . This can be proved with the help of
Pythagoras Theorem.
(b) Diagonal of a Cube : Here the edges are all
equal. Let each edge be l units.
diagonal =

l 2 l 2 l 2 l 3 units.
(c) The length of the longest rod that can be placed
in a room whose dimensions are l, b and h =
l 2 b2 h 2 .

## Standard Units of Volume

Concept of Arithmetic
Metre Cube and Cubic Metre: The solid region
formed by a cube of side 1 m is called a metre cube
and its volume is l cubic metre (lm3).
Since 1 m = 100 cm
1 m3 = (100 100 100) cm3
= 1000000 cm3
But, 1000 cm3 = 1 litre

1000000

or, 1 m = 1000 litres or 1000 l.
Now, 1l = 1000 cm 3.

th of a litre
1000
This is generally called a millilitre (ml).
Thus 1l = 1000 ml.
Cubic Millimetre: The volume of a solid cubical
region of side 1 mm is called a cubic millimetre
(mm3).
Since 1 cm = 10 mm
1 cm3 = (10 10 10) mm3 = 1000 mm3
Note:1 m3 is also called a kilolitre. Thus,
1 kilolitre = 1 m3
= 1000000 cm3
= 1000 1000 cm3
= 1000 litres [ 1000 cm3 = 1 litre]
1 cm3 =

## Since there are various units of measurement of

lengt h like metr e, decimet r e, decamet r e et c
t her ef or e ther e ar e many standar d unit s of
measurements of volume.
The volume of any solid figure is the amount
of space enclosed within its bounding faces. This
is measured by the number of cubic metres, or cubic
kilometres or cubic centimetres (or other units of
cubic measure) it contains.
Cubic Centimetre : A cubic centimetre is the
amount of space enclosed within the faces of a
cube of which each edge is 1 centimetre.
Litre or Cubic Decimetre: The volume of the
solid region formed by a cube of side 1 decimetre
(dm) is called a litre or a cubic decimetre (1 dm3).
Since 1 dm = 10 cm
1 dm3 = 1 dm 1 dm 1 dm
= (10 10 10) cm3 = 1000 cm3
or, 1 litre = 1000 cm3.

## Each of the various standard units introduced above

We have,
Volume of a match box
= (4 2.5 1.5) cm3 = 15 cm3
Volume of a packet containing 12 match
boxes
= (12 15) cm3 = 180 cm3.
Now, volume of card board box

What will happen to the volume of a
cube if its edge is doubled?
Let the edge of the cube be l cm. Then, its
volume V is given by
V = l3 cm3
....... (i)
Let V1 be the volume of the cube when its
edge is doubled.
Then, V1 = (2l) 3 cm3
[ Length of the edge of
new cube = 2l cm]
or, V1 = 8l3
or, V1 = 8V
[Using (i)]
Hence, if each edge of the cube is doubled,
then the volume becomes 8 times.

questions is that the total volume of a
solid does not change even when its
shape changes.
or, x3 = 33 + 43 + 53 =27 + 64 + 125
or, x3 = 216

are stacked one on top of the other.
The total volume of the solid so formed
is 128 cm3. If the height of each block
is 1 cm and base is a square, find the
dimensions of each block.
Let the length and breadth of the base of
each wooden block be x cm each. Since
eight identical blocks are stacked one on
top of the other and the height of each
block is 1 cm.
So, height of the solid formed = 8 cm.
volume of the solid formed

Ex. 10: A cuboidal oil tin is 30 cm by 40 cm by
50 cm. Find the cost of the tin required
for making 20 such tins if the cost of
tin sheet is Rs 20 per square metre.
Soln:
The cost of tins depends upon their total
surface area.
It is given that a tin is in the shape of a
cuboid such that
l = 30 cm, b = 40 cm and h = 50 cm
Surface area of one tin
= 2 (lb + bh + lh)
= 2(30 40 + 40 50 + 30 50) cm2
= 2 (1200 + 2000 + 1500) cm2
= (2 4700) cm2 = 9400 cm2
Surface area of 20 such tins

or, l2 =

188000
m2 [ 10000 cm2 = 1 m2]

= 18.8 m2
Now, cost of 1 square metre of tin sheet
= Rs 20.
Cost of 18.8 m2 of tin sheet
= Rs (20 18.8) = Rs 376
Hence, the cost of making 20 tins
= Rs 376.

Soln:
We have,
l = length of a brick = 22.5 cm
b = breadth of a brick = 10 cm
h = height of a brick = 7.5 cm
Surface area of a brick
= 2 (lb + bh + lh)

Soln:
We have, length of the well = 14 m
Breadth of the well = 11 m

Also, area of the field

or, l2 + b2 + h2 + 2 (lb + bh + lh) = 361
or, 121 + 2(lb + bh + lh) = 361
[Using (ii)]
or, 2 (lb + bh + lh) = 240
Hence, the surface area of the cuboid is
240 cm 2.

Let the depth of the drainlet be x metres.
Width of the drainlet = 10 m.

Surface Area of the Walls of a Room
In the previous section, we have learnt the formula
for the surface area of a cuboid and a cube. In this

area of the walls of a room. For this, let us consider
the following.
Make a card-board model of a room. Cut it along
its height through corner and spread it out as
shown in the figure given below, we see that it
has taken the form of a rectangle.

Concept of Arithmetic

## In the above figure ABCDE and ABCDE are

the bases of the prism. Every prism has two bases.
( b) Height of a Prism: The per pendicular
distance between the ends of a prism is called the
height of the prism.
In the above figure BF is the perpendicular
distance between the ends ABCDE and ABCDE .
So, it is the height of the prism shown in the
above figure.
(c) Axis of a Prism: The straight line joining
the centres of the ends of a prism is called the
axis of the prism.
In the abov e figure, a straight line passing
through O and O is the axis of the prism.
(d) Lateral Faces: All faces other than the bases
of a prism are known as its lateral faces.

## Triangular Prism and Right Triangular

Prism
Triangular Prism: A prism is called a triangular
prism if its ends are triangles.
Right Triangular Prism: A right prism is called
a right triangular prism if its ends are triangles.
In other words, a triangular prism is called a
right t riangular prism if its lateral edges are
perpendicular to its ends.
The prism shown in figure (III) is a triangular
prism whereas the prism shown in figure (IV) is a
right triangular prism.

## etc are lateral faces.

(e) Lateral Edges: The lines of intersection of
the lateral faces of a prism are called the lateral
edges of the prism.
In the above figure AA , BB, CC, DD and EE
are the lateral edges of the prism.

## Regular Prism and Right Prism

Regular Prism: A prism is called a regular prism
if ends are regular figures.
Right Prism: A prism is called a right prism if
its lateral edges are perpendicular to its ends
(bases). Otherwise it is said to be an oblique prism.
The prism shown in figure (I) is an oblique prism
whereas the prism shown in figure (II) is a right
prism.

K KUNDAN
A prism is said to be a quadrilateral prism or a
pent agonal pr ism or a hexagonal prism et c
according as the number of sides in the rectilinear
figure forming the ends (base) is four or five or six
etc.
If t he ends of a quadrilater al pr ism ar e
parallelograms, t hen it is also known as a
parallelopiped.
A quadrilateral prism with its ends as squares
is called a rectangular solid or a cuboid.
Figure (V) shows a right pentagonal prism and
figure (VI) shows a rectangular solid.

II
In a right prism, length of the prism is same as
its height. Also, all lateral edges are of the same
length equal to the height of the prism. It is also
evident from the definition of a right prism that
its all lateral faces are rectangles. The number of
lateral edges and lateral faces of a prism is same
as the number of sides in the base of the prism.

## Right Circular Cylinder

A right circular cylinder is a solid described by
the revolution of a rectangle about one of its sides
which remains fixed.
Thus if the rectangle ABCD revolves about the
side AB, it describes the cylinder shown in the
figure. AB is called the axis of the cylinder. The
circles described by AD and BC are called the ends.
Either end on which the cylinder may be supposed
to stand, is called base. The height of a cylinder

578
is the length of axis AB. The radius of the circular
base is called the radius of the cylinder.

Concept of Arithmetic
Total surface area of a cylinder
= Curved surface + Area of two ends
= 2rh + 2r2 = 2r(h + r)

Cylinder

## A solid bounded by two coaxial cylinders of the same

height and different radii is called a hollow cylinder.
Let R and r be the external and internal radii of
a hollow cylinder and h be its height as shown in
the figure given below. Then we have the following
results:

## The curved surface joining the two bases of a right

circular cylinder is called its lateral or curved
surface.

## Volume and Curved Surface (Area) of a

Cylinder
(i) Volulme of a Cylinder

## (a) Each base surface areas = (R2 r2) sq units

(b) Curved (lateral) surface area

## If we take a right prism with a regular polygon for

base, and imagine the number of sides of the
polygon to increase indefinitely, then the polygon
ultimately becomes a circle and t he pr ism a
cylinder.
Hence, volume of a cylinder
= (area of base) height
= 2rh; where r is the radius of the circular
base and h is the height of the
cylinder.

Cylinder

## Imagine a hollow cylinder t o be made of thin

cardboard, and cut along any straight line on its
surface parallel to its axis, then it can be spread
out into a rectangle whose sides are respectively,
the circumference and height of the cylinder.
Thus curved surface area
= circumference height
= 2rh

= 2Rh 2rh 2 (R 2 r 2 )

= 2h (R r ) 2(R r ) (R r )

= 2 (R r ) (h R r ) sq units

Pyramid
A pyramid is a solid whose base is a plane rectilinear
figure and whose side-faces are triangles having a
common vertex outside the plane of the base.
Figure given below shows a pyramid VABCDE.
The base of this pyramid is the pentagon ABCDE
and triangles VAB, VBC, VCD, VDE and VEA are
five faces.
If t he base of a pyr amid is a t r iangle, a
quadr ilat er al and a squar e, t hen it is called
square pyramid respectively. Similarly, a pyramid
is called a pentagonal, hexagonal, septagonal and
octagonal according as the number of sides of the
base is 5, 6, 7 or 8.

## Important Terms Related to Pyramid

(i) Vertex: The common vertex of the triangular
faces of a pyramid is called the vertex of the
pyramid.
In the above figure V is the v ert ex of t he
pyramid VABCDE.
(ii) Height: The height of a pyramid is the length
of the perpendicular from the vertex to the base.
In the above figure VP is the height of the
pyramid VABCDE.
(iii) Axis: The axis of a pyramid is the straight
line joining the vertex to the central point of the
base.
In the above figure VO is the axis of the pyramid
VABCDE.
(iv) Lateral Edges: The edges through the
vertex of a pyramid are known as its lateral edges.
(v) Slant Height: The slant height of a regular
right-pyramid is the line segment joining the vertex

## Right Pyramid and Regular Pyramid

(i) Right Pyramid: A pyramid is said to be right
pyramid if the perpendicular dropped from the
vertex on the base meets the base at its central
point ie the centre of the inscribed or circumscribed
circle. In other words, the vertex of the pyramid
lies on t he perpendicular t o t he base drawn
thr ough its centre. Other wise, the pyramid is
called an oblique pyramid.
The pyramid shown in the above figure I is an
oblique pyramid whereas figure II given above
shows a right pyramid.
(ii) Regular Pyramid: A pyramid is said to be a
regular if its base is a regular figure ie all sides of
its base are equal.
In case of a right regular pyramid the lateral
edges are equal and the lateral faces are congruent
triangles.

tent can accommodate 11 persons and each
person requires 4 sq metres of the space
on the ground and 20 cubic metres of air.

## A tennis ball and a fully blown football are some

familiar objects which bring to our mind the concept
of a sphere. A sphere is a three dimensional
geometrical object which can be defined as follows:
The set of all points in space which are equidistant
from a fixed point, is called a sphere.
The fixed point is called the centre of the sphere
and the constant distance is called its radius.
Figure gives the outline of a sphere whose
centr e is at O and radius = OP.A spher e has
symmetry about its centre. For every point P on
the sphere, the line joining P to the centre O of
the sphere, intersects the sphere again in a point

P such

that OP = OP .

Also OP = PQ + OQ

## A line segment through the centre of a sphere,

and with the end-points on the sphere is called a

In figure given above PP is a diameter of the

All diameters of a sphere are of constant length,
being equal to twice the radius of the sphere.
Thus, if d is the length of a diameter of a sphere
of radius r, then d = 2r.
Note:The length of a diameter is also called the
diameter of the sphere. A sphere can also
be considered as a solid obtained on rotating

## Section of a Sphere by a Plane

A section of a sphere by a plane is a circle. The
plane through the centre gives the largest circular
section of the sphere. The radius of this section is
the same as the radius of the sphere. Any other
plane, that is a plane not through the centre, gives
a smaller section as shown in the figure given
below

## The underlying concept for these type of questions

is that the total volume of a solid does not change
even when its shape changes. See the following

Radius of pipe = 1 cm
Area of cross section of pipe = (1)2 = cm2
Volume of water falling from pipe per second
