**Parallelepiped**

The volume of a parallelepiped of cross-sectional area A and height h is

or, equivalently,

where a, b, and c are the side lengths and θ is the angle between the slanted side and the horizontal.

**Slanted Cylinder**

The volume of a slanted cylinder with radius r, height h and slant height l is given by

or, equivalently,

where θ is the angle between the slanted side and the horizontal.

The lateral surface area of the slanted cylinder is given by

**Non-circular Cylinder**

The volume of a non-circular cylinder of cross-sectional area A, height h and slant height l is given by

or, equivalently,

where θ is the angle between the slanted side and the horizontal.

The lateral surface area of the non-circular cylinder is given by

where p is the perimeter of the non-circular cylinder. Note that the equations for circular cylinders may be derived from the equations for non-circular cylinders, by having A = πr² and p = 2πr.

**Pyramid**

The volume of a pyramid of base area A and height h is given by

**Spherical Cap**

The volume of a spherical cap of radius r and height h is given by

The surface area of the spherical cap is given by

*Note: Would it be useful if someone were to create labeled images of these shapes to aid in the visualization of them? I could make a few drawings.*

*Also, should formulas of solid analytic geometry go here as well?*

or...

A = s²/(4tan[180/n]) where s is length of side and n is number of sides (for those who don't want to use pi to calculate the area of a polygon)
