In this page mensuration worksheets we are going to see various worksheets of the topic mensuration of various grades.

Mensuration is one of the branch of mathematics.This means measurement.It is is being done in our life in many situations.

For example,

Length of cloth we need for stitching,the area of a wall which is being
painted, perimeter of circular garden to be fenced, quantity of water
needed to fill the tank.For these kind of activities, we are doing
measurements for further needs.

Here, we are going to cover three areas here.

1.Perimeter
2.Area
3.Volume

In this topic we are going study about perimeter, area and volume of
different shapes like cylinder,cone,sphere,hemisphere etc.These shapes
are called geometric shapes.

Apart from our aim towards the exam, like preparing for exams,aiming
to score more marks in exams, we need the formulas and concepts of this
topic to solve some problems in our day to day life also.

Mensuration-Practical example

A painter charges $5 per square meter to paint a
wall.Mr.Joseph has wall whose length is 5m and width is 4m.How much
does Mr.Joseph have to pay to paint the wall?

This is a problem we usually face in our day to day life.

To find solution to this problem, we need to determine the area
of the wall.After determining the area of the wall, we can easily find
the total money required to paint the wall.To find the area of the wall,
we need formula.That we get from this topic.
Let us look at another example.

We have cylindrical tank whose radius and height
are 1 meter and 3 meter respectively.Find the volume of water required
to fill up the tank.

To solve the above problem we need the formula to find the volume of the
cylinder. To solve these type of problems in our life, we require the
concepts of volume.For different shapes we have different formulas.
