# How To Calculate The Curved Surface Area, Total Surface Area, & Volume Of A Cuboid

A cuboid is a shape that is similar to a cube but the major difference is that a cube is made up of only squares while a cuboid is a combination of rectangles and squares. A cube and a cuboid are both six-sided objects and they are both polyhedrons. This article would provide the formulas to calculate the curved surface area, total surface area, and volume of a cuboid.

### How To Calculate The Volume Of A Cuboid

Volume is the amount of space enclosed by an object and the formula for calculating the volume of a cuboid is given by:

`l * w * h where l = length, w = width, and h = height`

### How To Calculate The Curved Surface Area Of A Cuboid

The Curved Surface area of a cuboid is the sum of the areas of its six faces and the formula is given by:

`2h(l+b) where h signifies the height, l signifies the length, and b is the base`

### How To Calaculate The Total Surface Area Of A Cuboid

The total surface area of a cuboid is the sum of the areas of all the surfaces of the cuboid and the formula is given by:

`(l × b) + (l × b) + (l × h) + (l × h) + (b × h) + (b × h) = 2(lw + wh + hl)`

The parameters used remain the same for all the formulas.
