**Volume**of Rectangle-Based Solids

**shape**is length × width, the basic formula for

**volume**is length × width × height.

Correspondingly, how do you find the volume of a 2d rectangle?

To **find** the **volume** of a **rectangular** prism, multiply its 3 dimensions: length x width x height. The **volume** is expressed in cubic units.

**circle**, you need π (pi) to calculate the

**volume**of a sphere. The

**formula**is 4/3 × π × radius

^{3}.

Regarding this, how do you find the volume of a shape?

**Units of Measure**

- Volume = length x width x height.
- You only need to know one side to figure out the volume of a cube.
- The units of measure for volume are cubic units.
- Volume is in three-dimensions.
- You can multiply the sides in any order.
- Which side you call length, width, or height doesn't matter.

The **volume** of a figure is the number of cubes required to fill it completely, like blocks in a box. **Volume** of a cube = side times side times side. Since each side of a square is the same, it can simply be the length of one side cubed.
