A shape that covers an area *A* and has a uniform height *h* has a volume *V* = *Ah*. (a) Show that *V* = *Ah* is dimensionally correct. (b) Show that the volumes of a cylinder and of a rectangular box can be written in the form *V* = *Ah*, identifying *A* in each case. (Note that *A*, sometimes called the “footprint” of the object can have any shape and that the height can, in general, be replaced by the average thickness of the object.)
