You have a mathematician from 3rd Century BC to thank for your ability to find the volume of an object. Archimedes used salami slices as a way of figuring out the volume of a sphere.
Today, calculating the volume of an object isn't that difficult. Our volume calculator just requires a few measurements to determine the volume of various three-dimensional shapes. You can easily calculate the volume of a ball, cone, cube, cylinder, or tank.
In the guide below, we explain what volume is, how it's used, and how to calculate it.
