A ton is a measurement of weight, and a cubic yard is a measurement of volume. The number of tons that a given cubic yard of material weighs depends on the material. More »

Area refers to the space inside a two-dimensional object, like a square or an octagon, while volume refers to the space that a three-dimensional object takes up, or the internal capacity of that object. Units of area inc... More »

In scientific terms, volume is three-dimensional space occupied by a gas, liquid or solid. Scientists measure volume in cubic units, such as liters, cubic meters, gallons and ounces. The most common equation to find volu... More »

The amount of space an object occupies is its volume. Volume is not always a fixed measurement. For any given object, volume is likely varies depending on pressure and temperature. More »
