How to do volume

volume of a prism=Bh

Definition

Volume-Determines how much an object can hold-inside-measured in cubic units-units-ft cubed,meters cubed,and inches cubed.

How volume works.

Well volume is simple all you have is a variety of formulas, like the formula of cone 1/3*3.14*r^2*h. The way it works is that in a problem it will give you a radius  and the height which is the r in the formula, and the h is the height. For example if the radius is 5in and the height is 12in the formula would be 1/3*3.14*5^2*12. the ^2 symbol stand for you have to multiply the 5 by itself.

Example problems

volume of a cylinder

the formula is 3.14*r^2*h. So if I use 3.14*6^2*8 the answer would be 904.32. If I used the formula of sphere the formula is 4/3*3.14*r^3, if the radius is 14 you would cube not square the number so the formula would be 4/3*3.14*14^3 so the answer would be 11488.21333. Thats a long answer but if you think of doing construction you better start get used to big numbers.

How you can apply this to everyday life situations?

We can use this method whenever we volunteer to help build businesses,homes,schools and etc. we can use this for a project. This is how volume is applied to the 21st century and for an even longer time hopefully.
