Volume is the quantity of space enclosed by a closed surface in three dimensions.

An example could be a cup containing water, or a scuba diving tank containing air inside it, among many other cases.

Cubes, spheres and cylinders, are examples of some of the most common three dimensional shapes, that have specific formulas that can be used to calculate their volume depending on the overall size and dimensions.

With time and practice, many people can become very comfortable working out the volume of various common Mathematical shapes.

•

One of the most seen shapes in our everyday life, a cuboid is a shape where it is often straightforward to establish the volume.

•

Similar to a cuboid, a cylinder is a shape that is also very common to see in the world around us.

•

The volume for Pyramids with a base that is square, rectangular and triangular are shown on this page, both right and oblique pyramids.

•

The 3D version of a circle, a sphere is another shape that will contain a certain volume of space inside.

•

Not only is a cone a similar shape to a pyramid, but the way we can calculate the volume of a cone, also follows similar steps to that of a pyramid.
