Sophia's Volume Post

The definition for Volume is:
Volume is the amount of space an object takes up.
Or to make it sound better and be more specific it is:
Volume is the measure of the amount of space inside of a solid shape like triangle, cylinder or cube.
The formula for volume is b=base bxh or lxw l=length
h=hieght w=width

a 2 means a squared

Sorry I am not able to post up any pictures.
So I'll just do this.


6cm C 9cm

a 2+b 2= c 2
6 2+ 9 2=c 2
(6x6)x(9x9)=c 2
36+81=c 2
117=c 2

5cm C


a 2+b 2=c 2
5 2+5 2=c 2
(5x5)+ (5x5)=c 2
25+25=c 2
50 2=c 2

B A 20cm


a 2+b 2=c 2
20 2+52=c 2
(20x20)+(52x52)=c 2
400+2704=c 2
3 104=c 2
