# Area and volume of geometric shapes

In practical calculations of specialists in industrial automation, as well as in the design of automated control systems for technological processes, it is often required to calculate the surface area, and the volume of various geometric shapes.

These calculations are implemented in the Android application "Instrumentation & Automation". Below are the formulas by which the program calculates the area and volume of geometric shapes.

Table 1.
