How To: Find the volume of a cube, cylinder, pyramid or cone

Find the volume of a cube, cylinder, pyramid or cone

This video shows the method to find the volume of a cube, cylinder, pyramid or cone. Volume is equal to the multiple of the area of the base and the height or V=(base area)(height). Starting with the cube, the volume= [(side)(side)](side) or side cube or side^3. In the video side=50m or V=125000 cubic centimeter. Volume of the cylinder= [(pi){(radius of base)^2}](height of cylinder) or V=(pi)(r^2)(h). Substituting the values, V=pi(2^2)(4) cubic inches or 16pi cubic inches. Volume of a pyramid = (1/3){(side one of base)(side 2 of base)}(height) or V= (1/3)(B)(h) where B= (side 1 of base)(side 2 of base). Substituting the values, V= 120cubic centimeter. Volume of the cone=(1/3)(pi)(radius^2)(height) or V=(1/3)pi(r^2)h. This comes out to be 94.25 cubic feet after substituting the values. This finishes in the video.
