## Mensuration Formulas with Examples

Mensuration is the branch of mathematics that studies the measurement of geometric figures and their parameters like length, volume, shape, surface area, lateral surface area, etc. Learn about mensuration in basic Mathematics.

Mensuration is the branch of mathematics in which we study the surface area, volume, perimeter, length, breadth, and height of geometric shapes. Shapes can be 2D or 3D in nature.

Terms | Abbreviation | Unit | Definition |
---|---|---|---|

Area |
A | m^{2} or cm^{2} |
The area is the surface which is covered by the closed shape. |

Perimeter |
P | cm or m | The measure of the continuous line along the boundary of the given figure is called a Perimeter. |

Volume |
V | cm^{3} or m^{3} |
The space occupied by a 3D shape is called a Volume. |

Curved Surface Area |
CSA | m^{2} or cm^{2} |
If there’s a curved surface, then the total area is called a Curved Surface area. Example: Sphere |

Lateral Surface area |
LSA | m^{2} or cm^{2} |
The total area of all the lateral surfaces that surrounds the given figure is called the Lateral Surface area. |

Total Surface Area |
TSA | m^{2 }or cm^{2} |
The sum of all the curved and lateral surface areas is called the Total Surface area. |

Square Unit |
– | m^{2 }or cm^{2} |
The area covered by a square of side one unit is called a Square unit. |

Cube Unit |
– | m^{3 }or cm^{3} |
The volume occupied by a cube of one side one unit |
