This section explores the concepts of area and volume in taxicab geometry.

  • Linear Length: Determining the length of a (straight) line in one, two, and three dimensions.

  • Arc Length: How to find the length of a curve in taxicab geometry.

  • Concept of Area: A general introduction to the concept of area in taxicab geometry. This page includes assumptions about the nature of area that need to be understood before exploring the Area page.

  • Area: Area computation in taxicab geometry, especially surface area for solids of revolution.

  • Area of Triangles: Formulas for computing the area of a triangle.

  • Volume: Volume computation in taxicab geometry, especially for solids of revolution.
