SURFACE AREA

INTRODUCTION

Hey! I’m your friend in Math. You can call me
Supermath if you want. I’m just an ordinary person but
they used to call me Supermath because I have the
patience to solve it all. C’mon it’s easy, all you need is
patience. Just remember that patience is a virtue. I’m
sure you will be good too in Math. Want to bet?

This module entitled Surface Area is careful made for you. It
tackles how to solve the surface areas of some solids step by
step to understand the lesson well.it is important that at your
age, you already competent with this lesson

I have prepared varied exercise for you to master and apply
the skills that you have learned

OBJECTIVES

After reading this module, you should be able to:

a. To know what is surface area
b. Solve for the surface area of some solids
c. Solve problems involving surface area
d. Manifest self-confidence

DISCUSSION

Surface Area

Surface Area is defined as the sum of the areas
of the outer surfaces of a solid. These outer
surfaces are known as faces.
Having studied polygons and their areas, as well
as polyhedrons and their characteristics, it will be
easy to understand how the total area of the
surfaces of solids is obtained.
Surface Area of a Cube

To find the surfaces area of a cube,
multiply the square of the length of
side by 6.

Theorem

The surface area (SA) of a cube side (s) is given by:
SA= 6s

SIDE
LATERAL FACE
Example: Find the surface area of a cube with a side
of length 6cm.
Solution: Using the formula for the surface area of a
cube, SA= 6s
2
, we have

SA = 6s
2

=6(6cm)

= 6(36cm

)
SA = 246cm

Surface Area of a Rectangular Prism

To find the surface are
(SA) of a rectangular
prism, add the areas of its
faces.

Theorem

The surface area (SA) of a rectangular prism of length
(I), width (W), and height (h) is given by:
SA = 2hw + 2lw + 2hl

Example: Find the surfaces area of a rectangular
prism whose length is 7cm, width is 4 cm, and height
is 5 cm.

Solution: Using the formula for the surface area
of rectangular prism, SA = 2lw + 2hw + 2hl, we have

SA = 2lw + 2hw + 2hl
SA = 2(7cm) (4cm) + 2(5cm) (4cm) + 2(5cm)(7cm)
= 56 cm

Surface Area of a Right Square Pyramid

To find the Surface Area
of a right square pyramid,
add the area of the square
base and the areas of the
four triangular faces

Theorem

The surface area of a right square pyramid with a
base of side (s) and a slant height (ℓ) is given by
SA = S
2
+ 4 (

) or SA = s
2
+ 2 (s x ℓ)
Example: Find the surface area of the right square
pyramid with base of side 3cm and slant height of 5
cm.

Solution: Using the formula for the surface area of a
right square pyramid, SA – S
2
+2(S x ℓ), we have

SA = S
2
+2(S x ℓ)
SA = (3cm)

+ 2[(3cm) x (5cm)]
=9cm

Surface Area of a Circular Cylinder

To find the surface area of a right
circular cylinder, add the areas of
the circular bases and the area of
the rectangular region which is
the body of the cylinder.

Theorem
The surface area (SA) of a right circular
cylinder of radius (r) and height (h) is given by:
SA

+ or SA =

Example: Find the surface area of a right circular
cylinder which has height and 20cm and a base

Solution: Using the formula for the surface area of a
right circular cylinder, SA = 2 , we have

SA = 2
SA =2 (5 cm)(5 cm + 20 cm)
SA = 2 (5 cm)(25 cm)
SA = 2 (125 cm
2
)
SA= 250 cm

Surface Area of a Right Circular Cone

To find the surface area of a
right circular cone, add the areas of
the base which is a circle (

), and
the curved surface which is the
lateral area (rℓ).

Theorem

The surface area (SA) of a right circular cone of radius
(r) and slant height (ℓ) is given by SA=

+ rℓ

Example: find the surface area of a circular cone if
the radius of its base is 3.5cm and its slant height is
7.25cm.

Solution: Using the formula for the surface area of a
right circular cone, SA=

+ rℓ, we have

SA=

+ rℓ
SA= (3.5 cm)
2
+ (3.5 cm)(7.25 cm)
SA= (12.25 cm

)
SA= 12.25 cm

Surface Area of a Sphere

Recall that a sphere is the set of
all points in space equidistant
from a fixed point called center.
The fixed distance is called the

Theorem

The surface area (SA) of a sphere of radius (r) is given by
SA= 4

Example: What is the surface area of a ball with a

Solution: Using the formula for the surface area of a
sphere, SA= 4

, we have

SA = 4

SA = 4 (6 cm)
