What is the formula for finding the volume of a rectangle?
Rectangles, being two-dimensional objects, do not have volume. Rectangular prisms, on the other hand, do. The equation for their volume is length*width*height, or lwh.
The formula is extremely simple:
V = 0.
A rectangle is a two dimensional shape and, therefore, it has no volume.
How is the formula for finding the lateral area of a cylinder like the formula for finding the area of a rectangle?
The formula is: Volume = 0 Flat 2-dimensional figures don't have volume. In other words, they can't hold water. A figure is 2-dimensional if it can be drawn on paper. A rectangle has area ... the amount of space it covers on paper or on the ground. The formula for the area of a rectangle is Area = (Length) x (Width)
The volume of the rectangle is of no use to you, since the volume of every rectangle is zero. What you need to know is the rectangle's area and length. You're supposed to know that the area is the product of (length) times (height). So if you know the area and one of the dimensions, you can use that formula to find the other dimension.
