In this video, Mr. Maisonet provides a quick and easy method for calculating the area of a trapezoid. In the first step, The lengths of the two bases (the two sides of a trapezoid that are parallel to one another) are averaged. The lengths of the bases are first added together, and the sum is divided by two, yielding the average. The average is then multiplied by the height. The resulting product is the area of the trapezoid. This method for finding the area of a trapezoid is mathematically s...

This video both shows the viewer how to calculate the volume and surface area of a cylinder. It also explains what these different numbers mean. The volume is the amount of ‘matter’ that the cylinder can hold. The surface area is literally the area of the cylinders curved face and the two end circles.

In this video, it is shown how to calculate the area of a circle where the diameter is given. The formula for calculating the area of a circle is pi multiplied by square of radius. Radius is actually half of the diameter. In this video, the diameter is given as 10.6 meters. Hence, the radius will be half of 10.6 which is equal to 5.3 meters. Now, to find the area we shall multiply pi with the square of 5.3. Square of 5.3 is 28.09. If we multiply 28.09 with pi we shall get the area of the circ...

One of the easiest ways to measure body fat is by using hydrostatic weighing. It is based on Archimedes' principle, the law of buoyancy. It works by calculating body fat from measuring the amount of displaced water after a person has been immersed under water. Since muscle is denser than body fat, a person who has more muscle will displace less water than a person of the same weight with more body fat. This test is usually performed for a couple times for averaging accuracy. If the test is do...

The video shows us how to find the area of parallelogram using geometry. Here in this video it is done by using an example where the parallelogram is given ABCD. The area of the parallelogram is base times height (bh). Here the base is given as 15 but the height is not known but it is represented by the segment BD. To find the value of h, let’s use right triangle BDC on the right side of the figure. Since base is 15 and the opposite side of the parallelogram is congruent, the hypotenuse of th...
