Calculate the surface area of three-dimensional objects
What is a three-dimensional object? A three-dimensional object differs from two-dimensional objects because they are not flat. They can be measured in three directions: height, width, and depth.
What is volume? Volume is the amount of space that an object occupies. Volume is measured in cubic units. Some examples include cubic feet, cubic inches, cubic centimeters, and etc.
