## anonymous one year ago How do you find the surface area of a cylinder and a prism?

Surface area of a cylinder $\Large SA = 2*\pi*r*(r + h)$

6. jim_thompson5910

For the prism, it depends on what type of prism it is The most general formula is $\Large SA = 2B + p*h$ B = area of base p = perimeter of base h = height of prism

The formula I have for the prism is SA = area of base * height

8. anonymous

does that count too?

@jim_thompson5910

that formula is the volume of the prism

11. jim_thompson5910

Volume of prism = (area of base)*(height of prism)

Great, thanks!
