# Volume - practice problems

Volume is the measure of the space that a body fills or occupies. The basic SI unit of volume is the cubic meter. It is the volume of a cube with an edge of one meter, i.e., 1 m x 1 m x 1 m. Significant another unit is 1 l (one liter), 1 m3 = 1000 l applies. One hectoliter (1 hl) is 100 liters.

Volume is always the third power of length. Or volume = area times length. For example, the volume of the cube is a3, and the prism's volume is S*h (the area of the base times the height). The volume of rotating bodies (sphere, cone) can be derived in high school by integration. The pyramid's volume is always 1/3 of the prism's volume. We calculate the volume of the truncated bodies either with a formula or simply by subtracting the volumes of the two bodies.
