Volume - Definition with Examples
Here, the blocks and books take up space.
The volume of an object is measured in cubic units such as cubic centimeters, cubic inch, cubic foot, cubic meter, etc. Here, for example, the volume of the cuboid or rectangular prism, with unit cubes has been determined in cubic units.
Here’s the list of the formulas for determining the volume of 3-D shapes.
|Geometric Shape Name:||Geometric Shape:||Volume Formula:|
|Cube||Volume = a³ , where a is length of each side.|
|Rectangular Prism||Volume = l × w × h , where l is length, w is width and h is height.|
|Sphere||Volume = 4/3 πr³ , where r is the radius.|
|Cylinder||Volume = πr²h , where r is the radius and h is the height.|
|Cone||Volume = 1/3 πr²h , where r is the radius and h is the height.|
