volume 10Volume, abbreviated as V, is a measure of the amount of space occupied by a three-dimensional object.  Volume is a extensive variable whose values depend on the quantity of substance under study.  It is expressed in terms of length cubed, a quantity of three dimensional space occupied by gas, liquid, or solid.  Volume is a scalar quantity having direction, some of these include area, density, energy, entropy, length, mass, power, pressure, speed, temperature, and work.

Volumes are used in many applications, including architecture, engineering, physics, and chemistry.  They are important for calculating quantities such as the amount of fluid that can be held in a container, the amount of space available for storage, or the amount of air that can be circulated in a room.
