## Volume of a Solid

 6.4 Volume of a Solid

We will learn to determine the volume of a cube and a cuboid using a 1 cubic unit cube and the formula.

CUBE
$$\text{Volume of the cube}=4\times4\times4=64\text{ cm}^3$$

We find that the cube has 2 main features namely:

• The sides are the same length.
• Has 6 flat planes of the same size.

CUBOID
$$\text{Volume of the cuboid}=4\times3\times3=36\text{ cm}^3$$

We find that the cuboid has 5 main features namely:

• Different side sizes
• 3 planes of different sizes
• 8 corners
• 12 sides
• Has space which is volume
