Geometry Formulas Made Easy

By: Urmann2
Geometry, the only mention of it can bring an itch to the fingers of many who love the subject. However it can also bring spasms to the stomachs who dislike it. Whatever is the case, but in fact, Geometry is one subject that equally fascinating and practical. That is why; geometry stands out to be one of the most popular and equally important subjects all around the world. And it comes as no surprise, when geometry is included as an integral part of academics in almost all of the educational systems around the world. Also, the recorded development of geometry spans more than two millennia.

Geometry is one of the oldest sciences and its existence dates back to hundreds of years. 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 subject. 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 associated with 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. Astronomy served as an important foundation of geometric problems during the next one and a half millennia.

One of the most crucial areas in geometry is the formulas. The geometry formulas allow students to identify and henceforth 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
