Finding volume

  1. 1. Finding Volume Solid Objects With Straight Lines
  2. 2. What is Volume? <ul><li>Also known as capacity </li></ul><ul><li>The amount of space something takes up. </li></ul><ul><li>Volume is 3 dimensional. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How is it Measured? <ul><li>Solids are measured in cubic centimeters. </li></ul><ul><li>Abbreviated as cc or cm ³ </li></ul><ul><li>Example - If an object is 3 cubic centimeters, you would write it either 3 cc or 3 cm³ </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why cc and cm ³? <ul><li>Volume measures 3D. </li></ul><ul><li>Measured in cubes. </li></ul>1 CM 1 CM 1 CM 1 CM ³
  5. 5. Volume Formula <ul><li>V = L x W x H </li></ul><ul><li>V is volume </li></ul><ul><li>L is length </li></ul><ul><li>W is width </li></ul><ul><li>H is height </li></ul>
  6. 6. Let’s Try One <ul><li>V = L x W x H </li></ul><ul><li>V = 3cm x 12cm x 4cm </li></ul><ul><li>V = 144 cm ³ or 144 cc </li></ul>12 CM 4 CM 3 CM
  7. 7. Let’s Try One <ul><li>V = L x W x H </li></ul><ul><li>V = 7cm x 10cm x 5cm </li></ul><ul><li>V = 350 cm ³ or 350 cc </li></ul>10 CM 5 CM 7 CM
  8. 8. Let’s Try One <ul><li>V = L x W x H </li></ul><ul><li>V = 4cm x 8cm x 15cm </li></ul><ul><li>V = 480 cm ³ or 480 cc </li></ul>8 CM 15 CM 4 CM
  9. 9. Review <ul><li>Volume is the amount of space something takes up. </li></ul><ul><li>V = L x W x H </li></ul><ul><li>This formula is for solid objects with straight edges only. </li></ul>
