**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.

Popular units of volume are:

**Metric volume units**- Cubic centimeters (cm³)

**US Standard, UK**- Fluid ounce (fl oz)
