## How do you find the volume of a square or rectangle?

length × width × height . The volume, V , of any rectangular solid is the product of the length, width, and height. We could also write the formula for volume of a rectangular solid in terms of the area of the base. The area of the base, B , is equal to length×width.

### How do you figure out the volume for a square shaped object?

Remember, the equation for volume is V = length x width x height, so simply multiply all three sides together to get your volume.

**How do you find the volume of all shapes?**

The volume of an object is the amount of space occupied by the object or shape, which is in three-dimensional space….Volume Formulas of Various Geometric Figures.

Shapes | Volume Formula | Variables |
---|---|---|

Rectangular Solid or Cuboid | V = l × w × h | l = Length w = Width h = Height |

**What is a volume of a square?**

Since each side of a square is the same, it can simply be the length of one side cubed. If a square has one side of 4 inches, the volume would be 4 inches times 4 inches times 4 inches, or 64 cubic inches. (Cubic inches can also be written in3.)
