Measure the Volume Of Solids


 


Measure the Volume Of Solids

Measuring the Volume of a Cube or Cuboid
  • Cube
    A cube is a solid contained by 6 equal squares
  • Cuboid
    A cuboid is a solid with 6 rectangular faces; Cube like.

The volume of a cube or cuboid can be determined by multiplying the breadth by the height by the length (b X h X l)


Measuring the Volume of a Prism
  • Prism
    A prism is a solid figure whose two ends are equal, parallel rectilinear figures and whose sides are parallelograms

To measure to volume of a prism multiply the breadth by length of the base: Multiply the total by the height of the prism and divide the result by 2.


Measuring the Volume of a Pyramid
  • Pyramid
    A solid with a base of four sides and sloping sides meeting at the apex.

Multiply the breadth of the base by its length then multiply the result by the perpendicular height from base to apex and divide the result by three.


Measuring the Volume of a Cone
  • Cone
    A cone is a solid having a circular base and at the apex a point and every point along its height is a straight line.
Multiply the radius by itself and then multiply the result by Pi (3.1416). Divide the result by three.


Measuring the Volume of a Cylinder
  • Cylinder
    A solid generated by straight line moving parallel to itself and describing with its ends any fixed curve.

Multiply the radius of the base by itself then the result by Pi (3.1416). Multiply this result by the length of the cylinder.


Measuring the Volume of a Sphere
  • Sphere
    A body or space bounded by surface every point of which is equidistant from a point within called the centre

Cube the radius. ...
Multiply the cubed radius by 4/3. ...
Multiply the equation by π
