V

Volume of a cone

Formula = ($$\frac{1}{3}$$)b * h (or $$\frac{1}{3}\pi r^2$$ * h).
Where,
b = the area of the circular base (i.e $$\pi r^2$$), and
h = the height of the cone.
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$

Volume of a cube

Formula = $$a^3$$.
Where,
a = the length of a side of the cube
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$

Volume of a cuboid

Formula = L * B * H.
Where,
L = the length of the cuboid, and
B = the breadth of the cuboid, and
H = the height of the cuboid.
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$

Volume of a cylinder

Formula = b * h (or $$\pi r^2$$ * h).
Where,
b = the area of the circular base (i.e $$\pi r^2$$), and
h = the height of the sides.
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$

Volume of a pyramid

Formula = ($$\frac{1}{3}$$ ) b * h.
Where,
b = the area of the pyramid (i.e $$\pi r^2$$), and
h = the perpendicular height of the pyramid.
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$

Volume of a rectangular prism

Formula = L * W * H.
Where,
L = the length of the cuboid, and
W = the width of the cuboid, and
H = the height of the cuboid.
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$

Volume of a sphere

Formula = $$\frac{4}{3} \pi r^3$$.
Where,
r = radius of the sphere
Unit of measurement = cubic unit, e.g $$cm^3$$
