 Geometry: Volume, Metric volume Solvers Lessons Answers archive Quiz In Depth

The concept of volume, just like the concept of area (discussed in the area module) holds great practical importance. If you dig a hole that you need filled with concrete, you need to know its volume to find out how much concrete to buy. Volume is measured in cubic feet, or in cubic meters. There are other measures of volume such as gallons or quarts, used mainly in the US.
The easiest way to think about volume is to try to imagine how much liquid you would need to pour into a geometric figure to fill it.
