Definition

Volume refers to the capacity (amount) of a space occupies with a 3 dimensional objects. 

It is measured in “cubic” units. The volume of a figure is equal to the number of cubes required to fill it completely, like blocks in a box.

Summary

Solid figures are three-dimensional figures that have length, width and height.

CUBE

A solid object bounded by six square faces,facets or sides, with three meeting at each vertex. 

    V = s3

where s is equal to the measurement of a side of the cube.

RECTANGULAR PRISM

It is a polyhedron with exactly two rectangular faces/bases that are congruent and parallel. Other faces are called lateral faces.

V = LWH

where L = length, W = width, and H = height.

PYRAMID

It is a polyhedron in which one face, can be any polygon. The other faces are triangular sides that meet at a common vertex.

  V = ⅓ BH

Where B = area of the base and H = height

CONE

It is a solid figure that has a circular base connected to a vertex.

  V = ⅓ πr2h

where r = length of the radius  and h = height.

SPHERE

It is a figure with a curved surface in which all points on the surface are equidistant from the center.

V = 4/3(πr3)

CYLINDER

It is a solid figure that has two congruent or equal circular bases that are parallel.

V = πr2
