Week of April 16: Volume

April 15th, 2018 by

Volume is the number of cubic units it takes to fill a three-dimensional figure. It is the amount of space inside a three-dimensional shape. Given a cone and a cylinder with the same height and circumference, the cylinder will be three times larger than the cone. The volume of a cone is 1/3 the volume of a cylinder with the same height and circumference.
