Volume calculator will determine the volume of the most common geometric solids
What is the volume?
The volume is the amount of total space on the interior of the solid. This is different from area because the area is only concerned with the outer portion of the solid, also known as the surface area of the solid. Knowing the definition of volume, we can now focus on the formulas for volume of common geometric solids. Using these formulas manually won’t be difficult, but for fast, accurate results every time, use the volume calculator.
How to find the volume of a cube
Recall that a cube has all edges the same length (See Cube definition). The volume of a cube is found by multiplying the length of any edge by itself twice. So if the length of an edge is 4, the volume is 4 x 4 x 4 = 64
Some notes on the volume of a cube
Recall that a cube is like an empty box. It has nothing inside, and the walls of the box have zero thickness. So strictly speaking, the cube has zero volume. When we talk about the volume of a cube, we really are talking about how much liquid it can hold, or how many unit cubes would fit inside it.
Think of it this way: if you took a real, empty metal box and melted it down, you would end up with a small blob of metal. If the box was made of metal with zero thickness, you would get no metal at all. That is what we mean when we say a cube has no volume.
The strictly correct way of saying it is "the volume enclosed by a cube" - the amount space there is inside it. But many textbooks simply say "the volume of a cube" to mean the same thing. However, this is not strictly correct in the mathematical sense. What they usually mean when they say this is the volume enclosed by the cube.
Remember that the length of an edge and the volume will be in similar units. So if the edge length is in miles, then the volume will be in cubic miles, and so on.
