volume 10Volume, abbreviated as V, is the space occupied by a mass.  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.

 

Volume formula

\(\large{  V = l \; w \; h  }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ V }\) = volume \(\large{ft^3}\)  \(\large{m^3}\) 
\(\large{ h }\) = height \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ l } \) = length \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ w }\) = width \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
