### Geometry Formulas

I was just curious, what is the formula for the surface area and volume,

and
respectively, for a pyramidal frustum and a conical frustum? I would prefer you to put it in LaTeX so I can easily understand it. Thanks!
Note: later I may ask for other formulas, so don't put away your brain when you're done!

Oops, I almost forgot; I would also like a picture showing where the demensions are. Thanks...again!

Hi;

For a right pyramidal frustum:

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Thanks!
I do want to ask though, is a right frustum just a straight, generic one? Or is it one that is tilted?
Also, I checked out the link, and it seems that the full surface area (as in, the whole surface of it including bases) is:

, where
is multiplication.
Am I right? I am kind of confused. The volume formula though, is easy for me to understand.

Hi;

It is much better to write it like this:

Sorry I wrote that wrong.

Thanks, again; I think I now understand it. (:

### Re: Geometry Formulas

Next geometry question I've been wondering:
What is the perimeter

of annulus?
I was thinking it was
where
is the larger radius, but what about the inner part?
Is that included in the formla, or is it just the 'strict' outside?

### Re: Geometry Formulas

Hi;

The perimeter of an annulus is the sum of the perimeter of the two circles, interior and exterior.

6 more (these might be tougher than before):

1. A & P of a Lune of Hippocrates.

2. V & S of spherical cap.

3. V & S of a spherical sector.

4. V & S of a spherical segment.

5. V & S of a spherical shell.

6. V & S of a spherical wedge.

Where V = volume, S = surface area, A = area, P = perimeter.
