Mr. Orlando’s MPM1D Lesson 6.4 – Surface Area of a Prism December 3, 2018 Lesson 6.5 – Surface Area of a Prism or Cylinder Surface Area Surface area is the measure of the amount of square area required to cover the entire surface of a 3 dimensional object. Recall that prisms have 2 identical faces, and rectangular side panels, equal in number to the number of sides on the face polygons. So a triangular prims has 2 identical triangle faces, and three rectangular sides. Finding the Surface Area To find the surface area, you must determine the area of EACH SIDE/FACE of the object, and sum them together. Mr. Orlando’s MPM1D Lesson 6.4 – Surface Area of a Prism Example 1: Surface Area of a rectangular prism Now you try a couple! December 3, 2018 Mr. Orlando’s MPM1D Lesson 6.4 – Surface Area of a Prism Example 2: Surface Area of a Triangular prism The same principle applies to Triangular prisms. Now you try!
