What is volume? — Volume definition

Volume is the amount of space that an object or substance occupies. Generally, the volume of a container is understood as its capacity — not the amount of space the container itself displaces. Cubic meter (m3) is an SI unit for volume.

However, the term volume may also refer to many other things, such as

  • the degree of loudness or the intensity of a sound (you may want to check our noise pollution calculator or dB calculator)
  • the number or amount of something (usually large quantity)
  • formal word for a book or one in a set of related books.
