## Square Prism/Square Cuboid Tutorial

##### Square Prism/Square Cuboid Definition:

A Square Prism is a right prism with square bases.

#### Square Prism/Square Cuboid Formula :

Area of Base(A) = s²
Perimeter of Base(P) = 4s
Surface Area of Prism = 2s² + 4sh = 2A + Ph
Volume of Prism = s²h = Ah
###### where

s = side, h = height.

##### Square Prism/Square Cuboid Example :

##### Case 1:

Find the surface area and volume of a square prism with the given side 2 and height 4.

###### Step 1:

Find the area of the base.
Area of the base(A) = s² = 2² = 4.

###### Step 2:

Find the perimeter of the base.
Perimeter of the base(P) = 4s = 4 * 2 = 8.

###### Step 3:

Find the surface area of prism.
Surface Area of Prism = 2A + Ph = (2 * 4) + (8 * 4) = 8 + 32 = 40.

###### Step 4:

Find the volume of prism.
Volume of Prism = Ah = 4 * 4 = 16.
The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Volume, Surface Area, Perimeter of a
Square Prism/Square Cuboid manually.
