Learn the Formulas of Geometry

Like many other science subjects, Geometry has developed to its present form with the help of contributions from many renowned mathematicians who devoted all their life understanding and developing this science. Pythagoras is among the first few names that come to our mind with the mention of this particular subject. Geometry was initially considered a body of practical knowledge relating to lengths, areas, and volumes. But it was in the third century B.C. when geometry was put into an axiomatic form by Euclid, whose treatment set a standard for many centuries to follow.


One of the most crucial areas in geometry is the formulas. The geometry formulas allow students to identify and subsequently make functional use of geometrical concepts such as its definitions, postulates, geometrical statements in if-then form and its converses among others. This is why, much of the importance is given to these formulas and if you are intending to master this particular subject, then you should develop a liking as well as understanding for the geometric formulas. There are several formulas in geometry like formulas for perimeter, area, volume etc. With the help of these formulas the students can solve problems or equations pertaining to particular geometric areas.


Then there is the much talked about formula which we get through the Pythagoras theorem. This Pythagoras theorem states that the two sides a and b of a right triangle and the hypotenuse c are related by a 2 + b 2 = c 2. Then for the beginners, there are several different geometric formulas which they can include in their study. Some of these formulas are


Area and Perimeter of a Triangle Area and Perimeter of a Rectangle Area of a Parallelogram Area of a Trapezoid Circumference of a Circle and Area of a Circular Region Arclength and area of a Circular Sector Volume and Surface Area of a Rectangular Solid Volume and Surface Area of a Sphere Volume and Surface Area of a Right Circular Cylinder Volume and Surface Area of a Right Circular Cone Resource Box.
