If so, then you've filled the volume of a glass with liquid. Surface area is exactly what it sounds like — the area of all of the outside surfaces of a three-dimensional object. And volume is all of the space inside a three-dimensional object. In this lesson, you will learn more about both of these concepts as well as how to compute the surface area and volume of various polyhedra. Next: Surface Area: RectanglesSurface Area: Rectangles
