  # RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 17 Volume and Surface area of Solids

The surface area and the volume of pyramids, prisms, cylinders and cones, the surface area is the area that describes the material that will be used to cover a geometric solid. The volume is a measure of how much a figure can hold and is measured in cubic units. The surface area is the area that describes the material that will be used to cover a geometric solid. When we determine the surface areas of a geometric solid, we take the sum of the area for each geometric form within the solid. The volume is a measure of how much a figure can hold and is measured in cubic units. When we determine the surface areas of a geometric solid, we take the sum of the area for each geometric form within the solid. The volume is a measure of how much a figure can hold and is measured in cubic units. The volume tells us something about the capacity of a figure. The concepts covered in the chapter include surface areas and volumes of combinations of any two of the following: cubes, cuboids, spheres, hemispheres and right circular cylinders/ cones, frustum of a cone etc.
