(Section 0.15: Plane and Solid Geometry) 0.15.1 SECTION 0.15: PLANE AND SOLID GEOMETRY LEARNING OBJECTIVES • Know formulas for area, perimeter, and circumference in plane geometry. • Know formulas for volume and surface area in solid geometry. • Be able to use dimensional analysis to check the validity of formulas. PART A: DISCUSSION • A number of geometric formulas must be memorized in preparation for calculus. We use them in the study of rates of change, related rates, optimization, and mass. PART B: PLANE GEOMETRY Description Plane Figure
