Volume: Descriptions, Calculations & Industrial Applications

- Area measurements utilize linear measurements to calculate the number of unit squares within a given boundary.
- Measurements of area are expressed in “square units” such as square inches, square feet, square meters, etc.
- They have length and width but thickness is not considered in the calculations.
- Never mix units in the same calculation.

- Volume is the space an object occupies or the capacity of a container. Volume calculations combine three measurements: usually length, height, and depth or thickness.
- Volume is always expressed in “cubic units” such as cubic inches, cubic feet, cubic meters, etc.
- A variety of different volume formulas may be used, depending on the shape of the object.
- Check your handout for exact formulas.
- Never mix units in the same calculation.

- 1 square foot = 144 square inches
- 1 square yard = 9 square feet = 1,296 sq. in.
- 1 cubic foot = 1,728 cubic inches
- 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet = 46,656 cu. in.
- 1 cubic foot = 7.47 gallons of water*
- 1 gallon of water = 8.3453 pounds*
- 1 square centimeter = 100 square millimeters
- 1 square meter =10,000 sq.cm.=1,000,000 sq.mm
- 1 cubic meter = 1,000,000,000 cubic millimeters
- 1 cubic meter = 1,000 liters of water*
- 1 cubic meter = 264.2 gallons of water*
- 1 liter of water = 1.000 Kilogram*

- Calculate the volume of the inside of the container assigned to you and your partner(s).
- Calculate how many gallons of water the container could theoretically hold.
- 1 cubic foot = 7.47 gallons of water*

- Calculate how much the water in the container would weigh.
- 1 gallon of water = 8.3453 pounds*
