# Volume

Volume, abbreviated as V, is the space occupied by a mass. Volume is a extensive variable whose values depend on the quantity of substance under study. It is expressed in terms of length cubed, a quantity of three dimensional space occupied by gas, liquid, or solid. Volume is a scalar quantity having direction, some of these include area, density, energy, entropy, length, mass, power, pressure, speed, temperature, and work.

### volume formula

(Eq. 1) \(\large{ V = l \; w \; h }\)

(Eq. 2) \(\large{ V = \frac { m } { \rho } }\)

Where:

\(\large{ V }\) = volume

\(\large{ \rho }\) (Greek symbol rho) = density

\(\large{ h }\) = height

\(\large{ l } \) = length

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ w }\) = width
