It is incorrect to say that sphere has lateral area. First sphere do not have sides like other geometric figure. In fact a line or plane can intersect the surface of a sphere in just one point. Sphere has no lateral side. It is enough to say surface area of sphere than lateral surface area of the sphere.

The lateral area is the surface area of a 3D figure, excluding the area of any bases. For the lateral area of a cylinder, you would take the circumference of the base multiplied by the height of the cylinder to get the lateral area of the surface. It's basically splitting a can down one side, cutting the ends off completely, rolling it out flat, and figuring out the area of the resulting rectangle.

Lateral surface area of a cuboid = 2 (Length + Breadth) × Height Lateral surface area of a cube = 4 × Side2

true

If a is the side,lateral surface area of cube=4a2

the formulas for lateral area dont include the figures bases. surface area does.

surface area is lateral area

total surface area is all of the area. ex. for a square pyramid it would be the area of the square on the bottom and the four triangle sides lateral surface area is all the surface area EXCEPT the base. ex. for a square pyramid it would be the area of the four sides of the pyramid. the bottom square is NOT included. for a triangular prism it would be the area of the three rectangle sides, NOT the two triangular sides

Lateral area excludes the areas of the top and bottom faces, which are included in the surface area.

The lateral surface area is 549.78mm2

The lateral surface area is 565.49cm2
