# How do you get the volume of a regular solid?

i have a big science quiz worth 25 points tomorrow and i need to know the answer to my questions bad! my “brainiac” of a teacher forgot to teach us how to get the volume of a regular solid, and he expects us to know it by tomorrow! pls help and answer my question. a millions thanks (and ten points) to those who can answer!

If you know the dimensions of the object it’s LxWxH, but if it’s an irregular object and you can’t measure it then to find the volume you would use water displacement, or the Archimedes method.

If you have a container with a spout on the side and a measuring device for liquid like a graduated cylinder you can fill it up to the edge of the spout and then submerge the object in water and the water that’s displaced will give you the volume of the object. If it floats you’ll have to push it down so it’s just below the surface of the water.

The conversion of mL to cm^3 is 1:1. 1 mL = 1 cm^3.

The volume of any regular solid is the cross sectional area multiplied by the length. For example the the volume [ V cm^3] of a cylinder, of base radius r cm and height h cm is

cross sectional area, pi r squared multiplied by the height, h.

V = pi r^2 h cm^3. And please do not be abusive about your teacher in future. If you do wish to be abusive, then at least spell it correctly.

For a cylinder, the quantity is the element of the backside greater via the peak. the backside is a circle and the section is pi r squared, so V = pi r^2 h the faster answer became into actual splendid with regard to the quantity of an oblong sturdy.

take a calibration jar. fill it with water up to the brim. put the object in the jar.. some water will be spilled out. note the difference between the initial and final volume of water in the jar. this is the exact volume of that object.

depth x width x height

the final measurement will be cubic units (cm or meters or inches)

example a cube of 3cm sides, will be 27 (3cm*3cm*3cm) cm3

if its any other shape like a rectagle maybe, (3in*6in*2in) = 36 in3

make sure the measures are the same, either all CM or all Inches or all feet. if they are not the same, you cant multiply them until you get convert them all to the same unit

put it in water and do the new wulume minus the volume of just the water

it’s length x width x height…

but actually, it depends on the kind of solid.. there’s a different formula for a cylinder, sphere and pyramid…

You take the length x breadth x height.
