# What is the volume of a rectangular block?

It's width times it's height times it's length.

### What has the same volume but different surface area?

This will usually be the case for objects that have different shapes: even if they have the same volume, it is unlikely that they have the same surface area. As an example, calculate the volume and surface area of the following two rectangular block shapes: 1) A 2 x 2 x 2 rectangular block 2) A 1 x 1 x 8 rectangular block

### How do you measure the density of a block?

Weigh the block calculate the volume of the block. This is done by measuring the length, height, and width of the block if it is rectangular. If it is some other shape then other mathematical formula apply. If it is an irregular shape for which no formula exists then you can estimate the volume by incremental methods or by displacement. divide weight by volume.

### How would i find the volume of a brick?

You cannot measure its length, width and height and multiply these together because all bricks have holes or indentations where the cement goes to anchor one brick to another. This method will give you the volume of the brick and its holes - not the volume of the brick. The simplest way is to place a large container in a tray. Fill a large container to its rim with water. Gently put a brick in…

### What is the volume for 40cm by 30cm by 62cm?

If that's a rectangular block, just multiply the three numbers. The volume, of course, will be in cubic centimeters. If you first convert the sizes to decimeters, the answer will be in cubic centimeters, which is the same as liters. If you first convert the sizes to meters, the answer will be in cubic meters.

### How do you find the volume of a rectangular prism relates to the volume of a tringular prism if the two have the same lengthwidthand height?

The volume of a rectangular prism is found by; Volume = Length x Width x Height The volume of a triangular prism is found by; Volume = 1/2 x Length x Width x Height Therefore, Length, Width and Height being identical, 1) the volume of a rectangular prism is twice that of a similar triangular prism OR 2) the colume of a triangular prism is half that of a similar rectangular prism.

### Figuring out cubic ft in a swimming pool?

Assuming the swimming pool is a rectangular block, just multiply length x width x height. If these measurements are in feet, the volume will be in cubic feet. If the swimming pool has parts that are deeper than others (it is common to have a shallow part, for children who don't swim well yet), calculate the volume for each part separately, then add the results. Assuming the swimming pool is a rectangular block, just multiply…
