Lesson 1: Topic A: Concepts of volume

Measuring volume with unit cubes

Explore the concept of volume, emphasizing that it's a measure of how much space something takes up. Practice the idea of measuring volume in cubic units, like cubic feet or cubic inches, by counting the number of unit cubes that fit into a 3D shape. Created by Sal Khan.

• If the radius of the base of right circular cylinder is halved. keeping the height same. what is the ratio of the volume of the reduced cylinder to that of the original.
• are there any other videos on this?
:)
• Yes, there are many other videos on this
• How many cubes are in 1 layer
• Depends. If it a 6 by 6 by 6, it would be 36 in one layer
• I used to think volume is hard but all you have to do is multiply.
• Yes, I agree. It makes learning much easier than any other site.
• Can you volume a four dimensional cube
• Yes, you can find the volume of a four dimensional cube. I don't know how, but you can. It is hard.
• What is the name of the website you used? I would really like to use that too en practice measuring the volume with unit cubes.
• I'm pretty sure it's the quiz below

• but if i want to make a bigger volume square i would get bigger results teha change i every dimension
• Hi!
When the dimensions of the shape, such as radius, height, or length change, both surface area and volume also change. However, the volume of the object always changes more than the surface area for the same change in dimensions!

• Can someone help me with volume? its the one were there is fractions involved and it askes about how many cubes there are,i watched the videos, did practices, but i still get the questions wrong,i thought i got the hang of it but when i did the practices i get all of them wrong can someone help me?PLEASE!

• To find the volume of something, you would multiply the objects length, width, and height together, then write the product with the units cubed.
