Area and Volume of Square Tutorial

Square

In geometry, a figure with four equal straight sides and four right angles is called as a Square.

Area

The area of a square is the amount of space occupied by the square.

Formula:

Area = Side Length2
Volume

The volume of a solid square shape(cube) is defined as the capacity of a square.

Formula:

Volume = Side Length3
Example 1:

Let us consider a problem: Find the area of square when side length is 12 cm.

Solution: Area of Square = Side Length2 On substituting the side length in the above formula, we get Area = 12×12 = 144 cm2 Hence, the area of square is 144 cm2

Example 2:

Let us consider a problem: Find the volume of cube when side length is 6 cm.

Solution: Volume of cube = Side Length3 On substituting the side length in the above formula, we get Volume = 6 × 6 × 6 = 216 cm3 Hence, the Volume of cube or solid square is 216 cm3
