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 »

As cells get larger, volume increases more rapidly than surface area. Since cells exchange materials and molecules across their membranes, a large cell has more difficulty transporting enough materials. More »

The volume of a box with height "a" and basal area "B" is given by the formula V = a*B, and the volume of a spherical solid of radius "r" is given by the formula V = 4/3*pi*r^3. Volume measures the amount of space occupi... More »

The mass of an object is the amount of matter it contains while volume is the amount of space it takes up. Mass should not be confused with weight, which is the measure of the gravitational force on an object. 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 »

Fan size is expressed as CFM capacity and is determined by dividing the area of a room by the number of minutes per hour needed to replace the volume of air. CFM indicates cubic feet per minute and indicates the amount o... More »

In math, volume is the amount of space inside a three-dimensional object, or its capacity. A measurement of volume offers insight into how much liquid or how many physical objects a person can fit into an object. Knowing... More »
