MENSURATION

Mensuration is a branch of mathematics which deals with the measurements of lengths of lines, areas of surfaces and volumes of solids. Mensuration may be divided into two parts. 1. 2. Plane mensuration Solid mensuration

Plane mensuration deals with perimeter, length of sides and areas of two dimensional figures and shapes. Solid mensuration deals with areas and volumes of solid objects. After learning this chapter you will be able to * Recognise a cylinder, a cone and a sphere. * * * * Understand the properties of cylinder, cone and sphere. Distinguish between the structure of cylinder and cone. Derive the formula to find the surface area and volume of cylinder, cone and sphere. Solve simple problems pertaining to the surface area and volume of cylinder, cone and sphere.
