WHAT IS SURFACE AREA AND VOLUME ?

The __surface area __is the area that describes the material that will be used to cover a geometric solid. When we determine the surface areas of a geometric solid we take the sum of the area for each geometric form within the solid.

SURFACE AREA

The __volume__ is a measure of how much a figure can hold and is measured in cubic units. The volume tells us something about the capacity of a figure.
