## What is meant by total surface area?

The total area of the surface of a three-dimensional object.

Example: the surface area of a cube is the area of all 6 faces added together..

## What is curved surface area?

The surface area of a cone is equal to the curved surface area plus the area of the base: π r 2 + π L r , \pi r^2 + \pi L r, πr2+πLr, where r denotes the radius of the base of the cone, and L denotes the slant height of the cone. The curved surface area is also called the lateral area.

## When would you use a curved surface area?

Curved surface area is for circular (infinite sided) cross section while lateral surface area is for finite sided polygon cross section. The slant side of the right circular cone is 12 m and its height is 9 m.

## Does surface area mean TSA or CSA?

When they say surface area it means csa . no! … most of the time if the given solid or article is csa they mention it as CSA and smetimes for tsa they dnt menton it they just say it is to find surface area. so according to me it is TSA-total surface area.

## What is TSA and LSA?

LSA refers to lateral surface area. TSA refers to total surface area. LSA means the area of the lateral/curved surface. TSA means the area of the whole object.

## What is the formula of total surface area?

Surface area is the sum of the areas of all faces (or surfaces) on a 3D shape. A cuboid has 6 rectangular faces. To find the surface area of a cuboid, add the areas of all 6 faces. We can also label the length (l), width (w), and height (h) of the prism and use the formula, SA=2lw+2lh+2hw, to find the surface area.
