A centimetre should suffice.

A centimetre, although you could use a millimetre for greater accuracy.

Base x Height x Width = Volume of any rectangular prism.

-- Measure the height.-- Measure the width at the top.-- Measure the width at the bottom.Area = (1/2) x (height) x (width-at-the-top plus width-at-the-bottom)

For a rectangle, length X width = area. Measure the length in cm. Measure the width in cm. Multiply the length X the width to get the area in cm2.
