Uses of Surface Areas and Volumes: From Class 8th to Class 10th

The surface area of a solid object is a measure of the total area that the surface of the object occupies

Surface areas and volumes are one of the most vast chapters in class 10, class 9th and class 8th. It has so many formulas to remember. this is truly one of the toughest chapters to crack in class 10, class 9th and class 8th.

When I was in class 10th I constantly complained about how huge the surface areas chapter was but it carried a lot of weight in the board exams. So, I had no option but to study the chapter at least for the sake of marks.

I always doubted if I would ever use the chapter’s formulae or concepts in real life but to my surprise, I found many applications of the chapter. 

Know the Basics of Volumes and Surface Areas

You need to know the basics of surface areas and volumes to figure out how much paint will take to paint your room. You need to know how to figure out how much gift wrap you need to wrap that gift in for your friend’s birthday.

We also need surface areas and volumes of formulae to figure out how much frosting is needed to cover the cake.

How much paper is required to cover your walls depends on surface areas and volumes as well. The surface areas and volumes that we studied in classes 8, 9, and 10 may be used to calculate the volume of water that fills a swimming pool.

We also need to figure out how much water a bottle can store. This chapter comes in handy even after you leave school in courses like engineering, masonry and product designing.

Because of this, you are unable to bypass the above that we discussed in courses 9, 10, and 8. If you have any questions concerning this chapter that we covered in classes 9, 10, and 8, please ask.

We strongly advise you to visit, our e-learning platform, for a clear explanation of surfaceareas and volume. You won’t be let down by the digital teacher, I am sure.

  1. I am loving this course! Never did I take an online course with this amount of support and extra reading to help me cope with the lack of face-to-face moments with a teacher. The reading suggestions so far are spot on and I already feel more comfortable with the course itself. They even guide us on how to evaluate better an online course. Thank you so much for this opportunity and for creating this for us teachers!
