Volumes and Surface Areas


Misconceptions in geometry

Misconceptions in geometry

Surface areas and volumes

  • Equal surface areas implies equal volume

    Cognitive Conflict needed!


3d shapes

3D shapes

In pairs

  • Use a sheet of A4 paper to make a triangular prism. Write your first names in large letters on two of the rectangular faces and place it on the table in front of you.

  • Which way did you fold the paper?

  • What difference did it make to the area for your names?


Surface areas

Surface Areas

We will be looking at the following 3D shapes:

  • Prisms

  • Pyramids

  • Spheres

The Surface Area of a Sphere

The formula for the surface area of a sphere was discovered by Archimedes. In the diagram below a cylinder just encloses a sphere of radius r. Archimedes was able to determine the formula by showing that a pair of parallel planes perpendicular to the vertical axis of the cylinder, would enclose equal areas on both shapes.

Surface area = 4r2

Surface area = 2r x 2r

Volume of sphere = r3

= 1½ x r3

In determining the formulae for the surface area and volume of a sphere, Archimedes discovered the extraordinary fact that if you envelop the sphere perfectly with a cylinder, the cylinder will have both a volume and a surface area that are exactly 1½ times those of the sphere. He was so overjoyed at discovering this remarkable relationship between these shapes that he had them inscribed on his tombstone together with the ratio 3:2.

1. Using the appropriate formulas, establish the truth of this relationship for volume.

Volume of cylinder = r2 x 2r

r

= 2r3

The Volume of a Sphere

The formulas for the surface area of a sphere and volume of a pyramid can be used to help derive the formula for the volume of a sphere. Imagine the sphere to be composed of square - based pyramids with their bases laying on the surface and their vertices meeting at the centre. By allowing the base areas of the pyramids to become infinitely small and the number of pyramids to become infinitely large, the total base area of all the pyramids tends to 4r2. The height of each pyramid will get closer to the radius of the sphere. Therefore the total volume of all the pyramids approaches ever more closely, the volume of the sphere.

Filling a sphere with increasing numbers of smaller and smaller pyramids.


Rotations and solids of revolutions

Rotations and solids of revolutions

  • Draw a set of axes xOy

  • In the first quadrant, draw a right angled triangle, with the hypotenuse sloping forward.

  • Now rotate this triangle about the x-axis through an angle of 360degrees

  • What shape do you get?

  • What 2D shapes should you rotate to get a cylinder? How about a frustum of a cone?
