```Volume
Volume
Volume is the amount of space
occupied by any 3-dimensional (3D)
object.
The units for volume are…
mm3, cm3, m3 and km3
Units of Volume
When we measure volume we find how many
cubes it would take to fill a space.
1mm
1mm
1mm
= 1 mm3 (1 millimetre cubed)

1cm
= 1 cm3 (1 centimetre cubed)

Volume of Cuboid
Formula
It takes far too long to count
cubes so lets use a formula…
Volume = Length x Width x Height

Triangular Prism
(what is a prism video)
Which of the following
shapes are prisms?
Volume of Prism Formula
Volume of Prism = Cross-sectional area x length
Length
Area = 10 cm2
8 cm
Volume = Cross Sectional Area x Length
= 10 x 8
= 80 cm3

(video to find volume of any prism)
Cross-sectional Area = b x h
=7x5
= 35 cm2

Volume = Cross Section Area x Length
= 35 x 10
= 350

Volume Triangular Prism
Cross-sectional Area = ½ x b x h

Volume = Cross Section Area x Length
= 16 x 10
= 160 cm3
(Khan: how to find volume of triangular prism)
Volume Cylinder
Cross-sectional Area = π x r2
3cm
= π x 32
= 27cm2 (I have used π = 3)
5cm
Volume = Cross Section Area x Length
= 27 x 5
= 135 cm3

Converting between cm3 and Litres
Divide by 1000
Move the number 3
places to the right
when dividing by
1000.
