Volume is the amount of space that an object occupies. Since the object is three-dimensional, the units will be cubic (i.e. cm3).
Volume of a Cube
V = s3, where s is the length of the side.
Volume of a Right Rectangular Prism
V = LWH, , where L is the length, W is the width and H is the height.
Volume of a Prism or Cylinder
V=Ah, where A is the area of the base, h is the height.
Volume of a Pyramid or Cone
, where A is the area of the base, h is the height.
Volume of a Sphere
, where r is the radius.
Find the volume of a cylinder if it has an area of 5 cm2 and a height of 4 cm.
Write down the formula
Plug in the values for A and h.
• Find the volume of a cube where the length of the side is 5 cm
• Find the volume of a sphere if it has a radius of 3 m.
• Volume is defined by the space that the object takes up
• Different objects have different formulas to calculate its volume
Queen Elizabeth Academy’s Private Tutoring Program provides our students with one on one, personalized tutoring lessons that are based on a step by step, easy to understand methodology.
At QEA, we focus on tutoring the students and build his or her foundation and understanding. Our tutoring approach facilitates independent thinking, so that our students can analyze the questions properly. Our tutors go through math and science lessons step by step, and make sure that you have a firm foundation before they move onto more complex math and science concepts.
For our science and math tutoring programs, we focus on providing step by step explanations during the tutoring session, facilitating the student’s understanding of the math and science concepts.
Math and science are cumulative. Therefore, building a good foundation is important for the student’s long-term success. In our math and science tutoring, we focus on clarifying the student’s knowledge gaps to help them build a good foundation in math and science.
Our tutors will categorize types of problems and organize knowledge making it easier for students to retain
