# What is the surface area of the box?

## What is the surface area of the box?

To find the surface area of a cuboid, add the areas of all 6 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.

What is the surface area means?

The surface area of a solid object is a measure of the total area that the surface of the object occupies.

### What is surface area simple terms?

more The total area of the surface of a three-dimensional object. Example: the surface area of a cube is the area of all 6 faces added together.

What is the surface area of a square based box?

The surface area of a square based box is A=2×2+4xy, its volume is V=x2y, where x is length of the 4 sides of the base and y is the height.

## What is the difference between surface area and volume?

Surface area is a two-dimensional measure, while volume is a three-dimensional measure. Two figures can have the same volume but different surface areas. For example: A rectangular prism with side lengths of 1 cm, 2 cm, and 2 cm has a volume of 4 cu cm and a surface area of 16 sq cm.

Why do you calculate surface area?

The surface area of a three-dimensional object is the total area of all of its surfaces. Surface area is important to know situations where we want to wrap something, paint something, and eventually while building things to get the best possible design.

### What is the formula for surface area of an open box?

The length of each side of the square base is 10 inches. If the height of the box is h, the volume is 10^2*h. The surface area of the open box is 50*10*4 + 100 = 2100 square inches.

How do you calculate the area of a box?

Find Out Things About a Box

1. A box is most often characterized by its height h, and its width, W, and its length L.
2. The width, height, and length of a box can all be different.
3. The volume, or amount of space inside a box is h × W × L.
4. The outside surface area of a box is 2(h × W) + 2(h × L) + 2(W × L)
