A figure made up of a number of plane or curved faces is a solid figure. Bricks, matchboxes, talcum powder containers and rooms are all examples of solid figures. A solid figure has three dimensions while a plane figure has only two dimensions.

Volume of a Solid Figure

The space enclosed by a solid figure is called its volume.
The volume of a solid figure is measured in cubic units such as cubic
centimetres (cm^{3}) and cubic metres (m^{3}).

Total surface Area of Solid Figure

The sum of areas of the plane or curved faces of a solid is
called its total surface area. It is measured in square units such as square
centimetres (or cm^{2}) and square metres (or m^{2}).
