### Volume

Rectangular Prisms

and Cylinders

Rectangular Prism
• The volume V of a rectangular prism is the product of the length l, the width w, and the height h.

V = l(w)(h)

• The volume of a three-dimensional

figure is the measure of space it occupies.

• It is measured by cubic units
• Ex: centimeters cubed (cm³)

height

width

length

Example 1
• Find the volume of the rectangular prism.

V = l(w)(h)

V = 5(4)(3)

V = 60 cm³

3 cm

4 cm

5 cm

Cylinder
• The volume V of a cylinder is the area of the base times the height h.

V = (Area of the base)(height)

• The base of a cylinder is a circle.
• You will have to find the area of the circle and multiply that by the height of the cylinder.
• It is measured by cubic units
• Ex: centimeters cubed (cm³)
Example 2
• Find the volume of the cylinder. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.
