What is the formula for total surface area?

Surface area is the sum of the areas of all faces (or surfaces) on a 3D shape. A cuboid has 6 rectangular faces. We can also label the length (l), width (w), and height (h) of the prism and use the formula, SA=2lw+2lh+2hw, to find the surface area.

In this way, what is the surface area of a square?

In words, the surface area of a cube is the area of the six squares that cover it. The area of one of them is a*a, or a 2 . Since these are all the same, you can multiply one of them by six, so the surface area of a cube is 6 times one of the sides squared. Surface Area of a Rectangular Prism = 2ab + 2bc + 2ac.

How do you calculate the surface area of a box?

The width, height, and length of a box can all be different. If they are the same, then the box will become a perfectly square box. The volume, or amount of space inside a box is h × W × L. The outside surface area of a box is 2(h × W) + 2(h × L) + 2(W × L)
