Volume is the amount of space enclosed by an object or shape, how much 3-dimensional space (length, height, and width) it occupies.

Plane figures like triangle, quadrilaterals and circles do not occupy any space because they lie on a plane. But solid figures like those given below do occupy space.

Every object that occupies space has a volume.

**What is volume?**

The space occupied by any object is called the volume.

So, the volume of an object is the amount of space occupied by
the object.

Volume is measured in "**cubic units**".

Surface like the page of your book, black board, are called plane surfaces. They do not have any volume but have only area.

A cube is a solid whose length, breadth and height are equal. Therefore, a cube, is taken as the unit of solid to measure the amount of space that a solid occupies.
