In geometry, three-dimensional shapes are solid objects that have three dimensions. The dimensions contain the length, width, and height of the object. Some examples of 3D shapes are cube, cone, cylinder, pyramid, sphere, etc. We find the volume of these shapes so that we can measure how much space an object takes up to store liquid, gas, etc. There are different volume formulas for different shapes. By using these formulas, we can find the volume of shapes.
In this section, we will learn the volume formula of all the three-dimensional shapes.
The amount of space occupied by an object is called the volume of that object where an object is a 3D object. We find the volume to measure the capacity of the object or container. We can find the volume of any 3D shape easily by using the formula. If the 3D shape is complicated, we use integral calculus to find the volume.
The volume is denoted by the letter V. We measure the volume in the cubic unit or unit3. In the following table, we have summarized all the volume formulas with the figure for better understanding.
