# Surface Area Calculator

## Surface area calculator

The surface area calculator is easy to use to calculate the surface area of common three-dimensional bodies like rectangular boxes, spheres, cylinders, cones, and triangular prisms. This calculator used the result in a fraction of a second. You want to input the radius of diameter in the required box and finally hit the calculate button to get the result faster. This calculator makes your calculation easy as the tool gives a simple step-by-step explanation. It focuses on the equation for calculating the surface area of the objects and the use of the equations given below.

The surface area is the total area that the surface of the object occupies. The surface area is split into a sum of the base area and lateral surface.

The lateral surface is the area of the object's sides except for its base and top. E.g., pyramid, cone, triangular prism, cylinder

When applied to solids, bases still determine where faces should be treated as bases. E.g., box, cube, etc.

#### The surface area of a sphere calculator

The surface area of a sphere is a three-dimensional round-shaped solid figure. The sphere is the set of points equidistant from the center point in a three-dimensional area. The distance between the boundary and the sphere's center point is called the radius 'r.'

#### Use the surface area of a sphere calculator

• Enter the radius value in the required field
• Click on the solve button to get the sphere surface area
• Finally, the output field of the surface area of a sphere will be displayed

#### The surface area of a cone calculator

The surface area of a cone is a three-dimensional solid figure with a circular base. The body of the cone has a curved surface. If r is the radius and l is the slant height of the cone.

#### Use the surface area of the cone calculator

• Enter the radius and slant height values in the input field
• Click on the solve button to get the cone surface area
• Finally, the curved and total surface area of a cone will be displayed as the output

#### The surface area of a cube calculator

The surface area of a cube calculator has six faces, eight vertices, and 12 edges. The surface area of a cube is defined as the space occupied by the shape in the 3D plane. The face of the cube is in the form of a square with six faces.

#### Use the surface area of a cube calculator

• Enter the side length in the input field
• Click on the calculate button to get the cube surface area
• Finally, the surface area of the cube will be displayed as the output

#### The surface area of a cylinder

The surface area defines the area of the three-dimensional shapes. The surface area is the sum of all the shapes that cover the shape's surface.

#### Use the surface area of the cylinder calculator

• Enter the radius and height value in the input field
• Click on the solve button to get the surface area
• Finally, the cylinder's lateral and total surface area will be displayed in the output field.

#### The surface area of the rectangular tank calculator

The surface area of a rectangular tank can be calculated using an online rectangular tank surface area calculator. It is the sum of the area of each of its faces.

#### Use the surface area of the rectangle tank calculator

• Enter the rectangular tank's length, width, and height in the input field.
• Click on the solve button to get the surface area of a rectangular tank
• Finally, you can get the output of the surface area of the rectangular tank

#### The surface area of the capsule

The surface area of a capsule can be determined by combining the surface area equations for a sphere and the lateral surface area of a cylinder. The surface areas of the bases of the cylinder are not included since it does not comprise part of the surface area of the capsule.

#### Use the surface area of the capsule

• Enter the radius value given in the input file
• Click on solve button to get the surface area of the capsule
• Finally, you can get the exact output for the required field

#### The surface area of the spherical cap calculator

A spherical cap calculator is based on th height of the segment. The calculator assumes a solid sphere and includes the base of the cap in calculating surface area, where the area is the sum of the areas of the base and that of the lateral surface of the spherical cap.

#### Use the surface area of the spherical cap calculator

• Enter the radius of the spherical cap, base radius, and height of the spherical cap in the required file.
• Click on the solve button to get the value of the surface area
• Finally, you can get the output for the surface area of the spherical cap calculator
