A connection which could be illustrated, and could be understood by students who know the perimeter of a circle, runs as follows: Put the sphere of radius R inside a cylinder, with the cylinder just touching the equator, and cut off at the height of the top and bottom of the sphere. (A cutaway view is in the diagram.) [pic]

What is the area of the curved part of the cylinder? 2 Pi R x 2R = 4 Pi R2. This is found by slicing the cylinder surface and rolling it out as a rectangle. Now, it is NOT an accident that the cylinder surface is EXACTLY the area of the sphere. Take in small horizontal slice through the diagram. (I have colored one such slice orange.) This cuts a rectangle out of the rolled out cylinder and slightly distorted rectangle out of the sphere. (If the slice is very thin then the distortion is "slight".) In the cross-sectional view below hc is the height of the slice on the cylinder, hs is the length of the arc on the sphere cut out by the slice, r is the radius of the distorted rectangle on the sphere and R is the radius of the sphere. [pic]

The area of the orange rectangle on the cylinder is 2 Pi R hc and the area of the distorted orange rectangle on the sphere is approximately 2 Pi r hs. These two areas are approximately equal (the proof is outlined below). Since the cylinder and the sphere can be decomposed into these rectangular strips, the area of the sphere and the area of the cylinder are approximately equal. This argument is in the spirit of how the Greeks compared slices to show that areas and volumes are the same. It is not only interesting reasoning in proportion, etc., but it is a lesson in History. In the same spirit, you can compare the VOLUME of a hemi-sphere with that of the cylinder with an inverted cone removed. (I think of the hemisphere with the equator at the bottom and the cone...

...SurfaceArea Formulas
In general, the surfacearea is the sum of all the areas of all the shapes that cover the surface of the object.
Cube | Rectangular Prism | Prism | Sphere | Cylinder | Units
Note: "ab" means "a" multiplied by "b". "a2" means "a squared", which is the same as "a" times "a".
Be careful!! Units count. Use the same units for all measurements. Examples
|SurfaceArea of a Cube = 6 a 2 |
[pic](a is the length of the side of each edge of the cube)
In words, the surfacearea of a cube is the area of the six squares that cover it. The area of one of them is a*a, or a 2 . Since these are all the same, you can multiply one of them by six, so the surfacearea of a cube is 6 times one of the sides squared.
|SurfaceArea of a Rectangular Prism = 2ab + 2bc + 2ac |
[pic](a, b, and c are the lengths of the 3 sides)
In words, the surfacearea of a rectangular prism is the are of the six rectangles that cover it. But we don't have to figure out all six because we know that the top and bottom are the same, the front...

...SurfaceareaSurfacearea is the measure of how much exposed area a solid object has, expressed in square units. Mathematical description of the surfacearea is considerably more involved than the definition of arc length of a curve. For polyhedra (objects with flat polygonal faces) the surfacearea is the sum of the areas of its faces. Smoothsurfaces, such as a sphere, are assigned surfacearea using their representation as parametric surfaces. This definition of the surfacearea is based on methods of infinitesimal calculus and involves partial derivatives and double integration.
General definition of surfacearea was sought by Henri Lebesgue and Hermann Minkowski at the turn of the twentieth century. Their work led to the development of geometric measure theory which studies various notions of surfacearea for irregular objects of any dimension. An important example is the Minkowski content of a surface.

3. In very dry regions, the phenomenon called Virga is very important because it can endanger
aeroplanes. [See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virga ]. Virga is rain in air that is so dry that the
raindrops evaporate before they can reach the ground. Suppose that the volume of a raindrop is
proportional to the 3/2 power of its surfacearea. [Why is this reasonable? Note: raindrops are not
spherical, but let’s assume that they always have the same shape, no matter what their size may
be.] Suppose that the rate of reduction of the volume of a raindrop is proportional to its surfacearea. [Why is this reasonable?] Find a formula for the amount of time it takes for a virga raindrop
to evaporate completely, expressed in terms of the constants you introduced and the initial surfacearea of a raindrop. Check that the units of your formula are correct. Suppose somebody suggests
that the rate of reduction of the volume of a raindrop is proportional to the square of the surfacearea. Argue that this cannot be correct.
