## What is Volume?

Each thing in three dimensions takes up some space. The volume of this area is what is being measured. The space occupied within an object's borders in three dimensions is referred to as its volume. It is sometimes referred to as the object's capacity.

Volume; How much space an item or substance occupies.
Measured in litres (L), millilitres (mL), and cubic metres (m3).
• To determine the volume of a material, we use measuring cups (like the ones in your kitchen! ), though we can also determine the volume of an object by measuring its sides.

## Volume Formula

Volume = Length x Width x Height

### Example

The length of a water reservoir is 6 feet, height 4 feet, and width 2 feet. What is the volume of the water reservoir?

We will use the following formula to determine the volume after entering the length, width, and height values:

Volume = Length x Width x Height

= 6 x 4 x 2

= 48 cubic feet

## Units of Volume
