Mensuration of Solid Figures Volumes of Solid Figures. — The volumes of solid figures can be found by applying the following rules.
Rules. 1. To find the volume of a prism or cylinder, multiply the area of the base by the altitude.
2. To find the volume of a pyramid or cone, multiply the area of the base by one third the altitude.
3. To find the volume of the frustum of a pyramid or cone, add to the sum of the areas of the bases the square root of their product, and multiply the sum by one third the altitude of the frustum.
TRIANGULAR PRISM 4. To find the volume of a sphere, multiply the cube of the
diameter by .5236.
5. To find the volume of a spherical segment, add the square of its altitude to three times the square of the radius of the base of the segment ; multiply this sum by the altitude, and the product by.5236.
6. To find the volume of a torus or cylindrical ring, multiply the area of the cross section
by half the sum of the inner FRUSTUM OF A CONE
and outer circumferences.
