Geometry - Volume of Prisms and Cylinders

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We learned about measuring the outside of Prisms and Cylinders in last week's video: Surface Area of Prisms and Cylinders. In today's free Geometry video, Volume of Prisms and Cylinder, it is time to think about what's inside. Volume is basically how much three-dimensional space a substance or shape occupies or contains. Finding the volume of an object requires a simple formula that is the length times the width times the height. Of course, while this is easy with a cube, or a rectangular prism, it starts getting tricky when you move to Cylinders. Professor Burger will help you understand the basics and then encourage you to put your brain to it with a real world example. Whether you are determining how much water is needed to fill a pool, or how much soup can fit in a can, volume is an important concept to learn as it has so many day-to-day applications.

As always, make sure you click the forward button to the left of the time stamp at the end of each lecture. Today's video has 5 lectures and you won't want to miss a minute!
