1. Area of Rectangle = L * W

2. Area of Square = S * S

3. Area of Triangle = (B * H) / 2

4. Area of Circle = 3.142 * (r * r)

I would like to find out is the volume for

1. square = cube

2. rectangle = rectangle prism

3. Triangle = pyramid

4. circle = sphere

Thank You.

To find the volume for square do I use the cube formula which a x a x a?. Same to find the volume of rectangle do I use the rectangle prism formula which is L * W * H? Same goes for triangle and circle...

hey the volume is not defined for rectangles, squares, circles as these are 2 dimensional figures ... it is for 3 dimensional figures ...................

so u cannot say anything on this

there is nothing like the volume of the square, .....

*volume is not defined for rectangles, squares, circles*

So does a triangle have a volume? I guess no

2d figures have no volume: squares, rectangles, triangles, etc. 3d figures have volume: rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, cubes, etc. Things can be put inside 3d figures like a box, but what can a square hold inside of it? Nothing.

Are the volumes zero or undefined? Isn't their height zero, so we get zero volume?
