There are several different formulas to determine the volume of different types of solid objects. For example, the volume of a cylinder is found by the equation V = pi * r^2 * h, where r is the radius of the end of the cylinder and h is the height of the cylinder. The volume of a sphere is V = (4 / 3) * pi * r^3, where r is the radius of the sphere.
