#  ## Mensuration Formula:

At first, let us know about Mensuration. It is a branch of mathematics which deals with the measurement of several parameters such as length, breadth, perimeter, area and volume of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional objects. Mensuration formula for class 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 contains data of lines and angles for measurement of several parameters. Generally, it is used for geometrical figures where there is a need to find out dimensions, perimeter, area, volume and several other physical quantities.

Perimeter: It is the path surrounding the object’s area. We can also say that the length of boundary of an object is its perimeter. It is simply the addition of length so it has no powered units. Simply its unit is in m (metre), cm (centimetre), km (kilo-metre) etc. Mensuration formula for perimeter is different for different figures.

Area: It is the surface occupied by the 2-dimensional body. We can also define the area as that surface of object in a plane closed within a boundary. Millions of lines in a plane coexist to form an area so Its unit is squared as we multiply length to lengths. Its units are cm2, m2, km2 etc. The mensuration formula for area is different for different geometrical bodies.

Volume: It is the space occupied by any three-dimensional body within its surface boundary. How much Space it occupies includes several dimensions such as length, breadth, height. So its unit is always expressed in cubic units as cm3, m3, km3etc.

2D figures Figures Formula

## Mensuration formula for Triangle Perimeter= Sum of all sidesArea = 1/2 b x h

Area = $$\sqrt{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)}$$

a, b, c are sides of triangle.

Where s=$$\frac{a+b+c}{2}$$

Area=$$\frac{1}{2}$$ (bxh)

## Mensuration formula for Equilateral Triangle Perimeter= 3xSide

Area = $$\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}$$ (side)2

## Mensuration formula for Square Perimeter: 4 x side

Area: (side)2

## Mensuration formula for Rectangle Perimeter= 2(length + breadth)

## Mensuration formula for Parallelogram Perimeter= 2(1st side + 2nd side)

Area= base x height

## Mensuration formula for Rhombus Perimeter= 4 x side

Area= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ D1 x D2

## Mensuration formula for Trapezium Perimeter= sum of all sides

Area= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ (sum of parallel sides)x altitude

## Mensuration formula for Circle Circumference= 2πr

Area= πr2 (where r is radius)

## Mensuration formula for Semicircle

Area=$$\frac{1}{2}$$πr2

## Mensuration formula for Cuboid Surface Area: 2(lb+bh+lh)

Volume = L x B x H

Diagonal = $$\sqrt{l^{2}+b^{2}+h^{2}}$$

## Mensuration formula for Cube Surface Area= 6 x (side)2

Volume = (side)3

Diagonal = $$\sqrt{3}$$a

## Mensuration formula forRight prism Lateral or curved surface area = perimeter of base x height

Total surface area =  lateral surface area + 2(area of ends)

Volume= Area of base x Height

## Mensuration formula for Right Circular cylinder Lateral surface area = 2πrh

Total surface area= 2πrh + 2πr2

Volume= πr2h

## Mensuration formula for Pyramid Lateral surface area= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ perimeter of base x slant height

Total surface area= lateral surface area + area of base

Volume= $$\frac{1}{3}$$ (area of base) x height

## Mensuration formula for Sphere Surface area= 4πr2

Volume= $$\frac{4}{3}$$πr3

## Mensuration formula for Hemisphere Lateral Surface area= 2πr2

Total surface area= 3πr2

Volume= $$\frac{2}{3}$$πr3

## Mensuration formula for Right circular cone Slant Height= l = $$\sqrt{r^{2}+h^{2}}$$

Lateral surface area= πrl

Total surface area = πrl + πr2

Volume= $$\frac{1}{3}$$ πr2h

## Mensuration formula for Frustum of a cone formulas Slant Height= l = $$\sqrt{{h}^{2}+ ({r}_1-{r}_2)^{2}}$$

Lateral surface area= πl(r1+r2)

Total surface area= πl(r1+r2) + πr12+ πr22

Volume= $$\frac{1}{3}$$πh(r12+r1r2+r22)
