How do I find the volume?

Make sure that measurements are in the same units. Multiply the length by the width by the height. Check that the units are correct, e.g. m3 Volume of a cuboid = length x width x height. Volume measures the total amount of space taken up by a three-dimensional object such as a storeroom or a box.

In respect to this, how do you calculate the volume of an object?

Consider a rectangular or cubic solid. Measure the length, width, and height of the object. Multiply these dimensions together to get the volume. To find the volume of a cylinder, multiply the square of its radius by pi, or 3.14.

How do you calculate the volume of an irregular shape?

Steps to find the volume of irregular solids
  1. Break the solid down into shapes whose volume you know how to calculate (like polygons,
  2. cylinders, and cone).
  3. Calculate the volume of the small shapes.
  4. Add up all of the volumes to get the total volume of the shape.
