4.3  Volume of Prisms and Cylinders
Let us consider how we can measure the volume of a rectangular prism or box. If we measure the distance from one side to
the other we are measuring one dimension, which we can call length (l) or width (w). If we measure both the length
and the width and multiply length times width, we have measured the area of the box's base. Area is
then a twodimensional measurement.
If we measure the height of the prism and multiply length times width times height, we have computed
the volume of the treedimensional object called a rectangular prism or box.
A rectangular prism (box) and a cylinder
The volume of a cylinder is obtained by first computing the area of the base. The base of a cylinder is a circle.
The area of a circle is obtained with the formula,
Area = πR^{2}
Because the radius (R) is equal to half the diameter (d), you can also use the formula,
Area = πd^{2}

If we measure the height of the cylinder and multiply area times height, we have computed
the volume of the treedimensional object.
