## Overview

Volume is the space occupied by a substance or object. This can also be the space in a container that can be filled. While length is a two-dimensional quantity, volume is a three-dimensional quantity. Therefore, the volume of one- and two-dimensional objects such as a point or line is zero.

## Units

### Cubic Meters

< p>The base unit in SI for volume is the cubic meter. It is defined as the volume of a cube whose side lengths are one meter. Derivatives of the cubic meter such as cubic centimeter are also used.

### Litre

A liter is also a commonly used unit of the metric system. It is equal to the volume of a 10 centimeter cube that holds:

1 liter = 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm = 1000 cubic centimeters.

This is equal to 0.001 cubic meter. A liter of water at 4 ℃ corresponds almost to the mass of 1 kilogram. Milliliter is also commonly used. It is equal to 1/1000th of a liter or one cubic centimeter. It is often abbreviated to ml.

### Gill

< p>Gill is currently used for measuring alcoholic beverages, with a gill equal to five fluid ounces in the British system and four fluid ounces in the American system. A US gill is a quarter of a pint or half a cup. When dispensing alcohol in pubs, the standard measure in Ireland is ¼ gil or 35.5 millilitres. In Scotland it was ⅕ gill or 28.4 milliliters and in England it was ⅙ gill or 23.7 milliliters. Today it is either 25 or 35 milliliters in both parts of the country. The bartender can choose which measure of the two to use.

### Dram

Dram or drachma is a unit of mass, unit of volume, and a coin. Used in pharmacies, it equaled a teaspoon until the teaspoon was redefined. Today, a US teaspoon is equal to about 1 1/3 drams.

## Cooking

Liquids in recipes are commonly measured in volume in the metric system, as opposed to the mass measurement of many dry ingredients.

### Teaspoon

The volume for a teaspoon, often abbreviated to TL, corresponds to different values. Historically it was ¼ of a tablespoon, later ⅓, a value used in the US today. It corresponds to about 4.93 milliliters. In dietetics, a teaspoon is exactly 5 milliliters in the US system. That is equal to one metric teaspoon. In the UK, a teaspoon is generally about 5.9 milliliters, although some sources state 5 milliliters. Usually, measuring spoons are standardized to a certain degree, but volumes of teaspoons used as table setting do not follow any standard.

### Tablespoons

Volumes of tablespoons, often abbreviated to tbsp, also vary by region. US tablespoons are three teaspoons, ½ ounce, about 14.7 milliliters, or 1/16 US cup. Tablespoons in the UK, Canada, Japan, South Africa and New Zealand are also defined as three teaspoons. Therefore, a metric tablespoon holds 15 milliliters. A UK tablespoon holds about 17.7 milliliters when the teaspoon holds 5.9 milliliters and 15 when the teaspoon holds 5 milliliters. The Australian tablespoon holds about ⅔ of an ounce, 4 teaspoons, and is standardized at 20 milliliters.

### Cup

A cup, or mug, is an unofficial unit of volume measurement in the range of 200 to 250 milliliters. A metric cup equals 250 milliliters; a US cup is smaller and equals 236.6 milliliters. Nutritional labels in the US define a cup as 240 milliliters. A Japanese cup is even smaller, equal to 200 milliliters.

### Quart and gallon

The measure of a gallon also differs by region. The British gallon is 4.55 liters and the American liquid gallon is approximately 3.79 liters. Gallons are commonly used to measure fuel. A quart is a quarter of a gallon. A US quart is approximately 1.1 litres, and a UK quart is approximately 1.14 litres.

### Pint

A pint is typically used to measure beer, even in countries that do not use pints for other dimensions. It is used in the UK to measure milk and cider. Pints are used in other European and Commonwealth countries. Because of the different definitions of a gallon, a pint corresponds to different volumes in different regions. Both the British and American pint are equal to ⅛ gallons. That is, a UK pint is approximately 568.2 milliliters, while a US pint is approximately 473.2 milliliters.

### Liquid Ounce

The volume of US and UK liquid ounces is not the same. A UK fluid ounce is 0.96 US fluid ounces. This means that a British fluid ounce is about 28.4 milliliters and a US fluid ounce is about 29.6 milliliters. Six teaspoons, two tablespoons, or ⅛ US Cup equals one US fluid ounce.

## Volume Calculation

### Liquid Displacement

The volume of an object can be measured by the displacement of liquid caused by the object. For example, if a measuring cup contains 1 liter of water and the water level rises to 1.5 liters when the object is placed in the cup and it is completely covered with water, the volume of the object is 0.5 liters. This method only works with material that does not absorb water.

### Volume calculation using formulas

Volume is calculated for the following geometric shapes as follows:

< p>**Prism:** product of base area and height.

**Rectangular prism:** product of length, width and height.

**Cube: ** product of length, width and height.

**Ellipsoid: ** product of half the axes multiplied by 4/3π.

< p>**Pyramid: ** Product of the base area and the height multiplied by ⅓.

**Rectangular box: ** Product of the length, width and height. If the height is not known, it can be calculated using the third side and the angle between that side and the baseline. If we call them and respectively and the length and the width , we can use the following formula to calculate the volume Use :

cos(π)

Other ways of calculating volume can be derived from the properties of a right triangle.

**Cone: ** radius squared, multiplied by height and multiplied by ⅓ π.

**Sphere: ** radius of cube, multiplied by 4/3 π.

**Cylinder:** Product of the base, π and the height: V = π r² h, where r is the radius of the base and h is the height.

Using algebra one can derive the ratio of the volumes of cylinder:sphere:cone, which is 3:2:1.
